Parents and children from St Edmund’s Community Primary School gardening club are going to be very busy over the coming weeks after receiving four tonnes of compost donated by local firm Greenworld.
The school in Kilhams Way, Lynn, has also been given two tonnes of wood chippings to add to a trailer load of local horse manure provided by teacher Lucy Morley.
The children and parents of the school will be joining forces to fill the 18 raised beds they have constructed from wood donated by Travis Perkins in preparation for growing fruit and vegetables to show and sell at the next King’s Lynn in Bloom event in May.
Glenn Russell, teaching assistant at the school, who runs the gardening club, said: “The gardeners of St Ed’s are always very keen and enthusiastic when it comes to working hard on the school allotment. We now have more raised beds that the children have built with help from the parents. We will all now spend the coming weeks filling the beds and planning what to grow in them, all in preparation of the next King’s Lynn in Bloom event. ”
