If you’ve walked round to the front of the Henley Hall or passed by on the street you can’t fail to have smiled at the sight of the colourful wellies spilling over with bright primulas! They’ve certainly attracted some attention and comment.
The flowers were planted by the under-fives group one Tuesday afternoon and this is just the start of what we hope will be a regular visit by the youngsters to the community garden. As one of the mums commented, ” they love getting dirty!”. Sowing the seeds of future gardeners is one of the most important things we can do with our garden space. We learn together that the earth is so generous and forgiving if we treat it with respect and care.
Before the Easter break, the children will plant up troughs with strawberries so they can watch them flower and fruit over the next couple of months on the wall outside the hall. A tasty treat for snack time!
