Gardening Club at St. Cuthbert's RC Primary School, Seaham

The gardening club at St. Cuthbert’s RC Primary School is a fantastic example of what happens when dedicated school staff, community members and parents get together. With the support of OASES the school are bringing a derelict allotment back to life to teach the children about where their food comes from, encourage them to eat more healthily and to get outdoors. Our beans, peas and potatoes are coming on beautifully and other allotment holders have given us tomato, sprout, leek, courgette and strawberry plants.
The next step is to find funding to replace our old raised beds and the poly tunnel cover.
