Today saw the very first planting for our Bocombra Community Garden. We had a very exciting delivery from Sunnyside Garden Centre this morning of a whole range of plants from primroses and violas to potatoes and herbs. Thanks to funding from the Live Here Love Here project, we have been able to put in 3 large raised beds and buy lots of plants to put in them.
Jolene from Young People's Project at Bocombra Children's Centre brought a student to do some planting in one of our new raised beds along the gravel pitch.
Pamela Hanna, our Community Engagement Officer from Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council came to visit us at lunch time to help some pupils with their planting. We also had help from Mrs Cooper (from our PTA) and a parent Wendy Chambers (from HSBC).
We are excited to see how the raised beds develop over the next few days as all the other classes get out to plant. Keep an eye out for some new plants appearing!
