From our Head Gardener

The garden is a special place to us in the Kindergarten, not only its simple beauty but the bounty of vegetables, fruit, herbs and wonderful flowers it provides throughout the year.  The seasons are played out in our garden which the children see and experience first -hand.

In Spring, the children sow peas, mangetout, pumpkins, herbs, sunflowers to name a few, later on they help transplant the seedlings into the garden beds.

Mid-summer the children love to pick fresh peas, mangetout and berries from the garden.  They especially love digging for potatoes and wriggly worms.

Autumn brings the harvest, with more berries, apples, carrots and pumpkins.  The children help prepare the vegetables that we harvest fresh from our garden, and make a wonderful warming soup for our meal.  The berries are squeezed into a delicious smoothie one day and berry muffins the next.

In Winter, the garden sleeps and the children help place a big blanket of straw to keep it warm until next Spring.

The garden is full of adventures and we often become explorers investigating all the curious creatures that live there, from worms, to beetles, ladybirds, caterpillars and our resident frog.

Our garden provides a wonderful opportunity for children to see first-hand where vegetables and fruit come from and be a part of that growing experience.  Working with the soil is a very grounding and relaxing experience for all and it brings us close to nature and in some way to our true selves – a spiritual experience you might say!
