Third Class Gardeners!

The girls in third class were delighted to finally harvest these wonderful heads of broccoli from the school garden. Having planted these broccoli plants a few months ago, in the raised beds provided by Sarah-Jane’s father, the girls made sure the plants were watered regularly. They were amazed to see the broccoli heads sprouting and growing to such an impressive size. Well done girls!

Bee Aware Blog

 

In October Mrs. Chambers and her class participated in Green Sod Ireland’s bee friendly planting project “Bee Aware”. The students learned about pollination, how to identify common Irish bumblebee species and how to help local bees by making their school garden more bee friendly. The students sowed native Irish wild flower seeds in the garden including Bird’s Foot Trefoil, Red Clover, Field Scabious, Lesser Knapweed, Oxeye Daisy and Yellow Rattle; all of which provide vital nectar and pollen for foraging bees. The class received native Irish wild flower seeds to sow in seed trays and plant in pots and flower beds to encourage more bee friendly planting in the community! Bee Aware seeds are sourced from Design By Nature and include their All-Ireland Pollinator Plan Wildflower Mixture:  http://www.wildflowers.ie/mixes/wf/wf03.htm
