Jon Scott has made furniture for both St Marys (SMS) and Bridport Primary School (BPS) for children to germinate seeds and potting on. SMS benefits from an electricity supply in the polytunnel, allowing for a heated mat to aid germination of Mediterranean vegetables and prolong the growing season.
At BPS a custom-made lean-to attached to the existing shed is providing a sheltered work area for the children. We are very grateful for donations of spent hops from Palmers, manure from Modbury farm and wood chips from Forest and Tree Care, as well as two jostaberry plants from Dr Steve. If you would like to work as a volunteer on Wednesday afternoon at SMS or Thursday afternoon at BPS please let Sarah know .
Thanks to Emily and Jon at SMS and Viv and Chris at BPS.
