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 Thursday lunchtime and all keen green-fingered children from Year 2 and Year 4 come along on a rota basis to help. There are always lots of jobs to keep everyone busy!!
We’ve been busy in Allotment Club this Springtime, with weeding and prepping the beds and have now planted onions, potatoes and tomatoes. We are growing seedlings of radishes, beans, lettuce ready to plant out soon.
Allotment Club - Harvest
The children in allotment club have worked hard this half term, gathering all the produce for harvest. They then sold this during our Harvest festival assembly and made over £242.88 for our World Vision sponsored child, Noelia.
Thank you to Mr Jackson for another fantastic year working in our school allotment. This is everyone who came to allotment club in 2018/19.
In this photo you can see everyone who came to allotment 2017-18, with Mr Jackson, our volunteer, who runs the allotment.
Allotment Club have been waiting a long time for the cold weather to end so they could get on with planting some potatoes and onions
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!
