Allotment Club

 

Welcome to the Coquet Park Allotment Club page!  

At Coquet Park we have a wonderful allotment area at the back of the school.   In allotment club we learn lots about how to grow different plants and vegetables and throughout the year we look after them and help them to grow.

Mrs Cairns runs the allotment club with Mr Jackson, a volunteer from the Friend's of Briar Dene,  every Monday lunchtime and all keen green-fingered children from Year 1 to Year 4 are welcome along to help. There are always lots of jobs to keep everyone busy!!

This half term we are working hard to harvest the crops that have grown over the summer. These photos show us harvesting the onions. We hope to sell our produce at the Harvest Festival in a few weeks time. The children who attend this club will change on a half termly basis so everyone will get a chance to help keep our allotment in tip top condition!

Allotment club have been continuing to meet every Thursday and are currently raking, hoeing and weeding to prepare the soil for spring.   Cormac has made a hedgehog house and we have placed it under the tree in the allotment to encourage hedgehogs to visit. Hedgehogs eat many of the pests that eat the allotment crops so we really want a hedgehog to take up residence!
