Wildlife Club 2017-18
As St. Mark's have started a link with Zion Education Centre in Rwanda, Wildlife club this year have begun making a keyhole garden in the same shape as those built in Rwanda. Rwandan people build them in this shape in order to be able to reach the middle of the bed to water properly.
In the first week, we mapped out the shape of our garden and Mr Apps later took the turf off the top.
Last week, we began brick laying with the help of Mr and Mrs Muir!
All planted up ready for winter!
This week, we sowed our vegetable seeds into little pots so they can germinate over winter and we can plant the seedlings out into our Key Hole Garden in the spring.
We planted: Onions, Cauliflower, Beetroot, Swiss Chard, Curly Kale, Cabbage, Carrots, Parsnips.
This week, Wildlife Club have been weeding our Keyhole Garden, removing dead heads and dead leaves
We have also cut a new boarder for a flower bed by the pond and lined it with the left over bricks.
This week, we had two slimey visitors! Bill and Bob the African land snails came to Wildlife club. We were able to hold them and then we drew them and researched them!
