PRIMARY school children in Towcester are developing green fingers thanks to a series of planting events.
On Friday, March 9 pupils at Towcester CofE witnessed the planting of an oak sapling donated by Anne and Barry Webb to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Then on Friday, March 16, children at Nicholas Hawksmoor Primary were presented with a raised vegetable bed by representatives of the Towcester Homebase as part of the Eco-School Project.
Nicholas Hawksmoor headteacher Richard Edwards said: “We feel the children will learn much about sustainability and healthy eating. It will also give them a love for gardening that hopefully will stay with them for life.”
Then on Saturday, March 24 children helped members of the Nicholas Hawksmoor Pocket Park Association plant 420 trees given to them to commemorate the Jubilee by the Woodland Trust.
