Since 2011 we have been working towards creating a School Community Garden where students, the local community and families can grow their own food, share expertise and enjoy a creative and friendly community learning environment.
We already have Food Tech, Science, Special Educational Needs departments and 4 members of our local community signed up to maintain and cultivate their own garden environments.
With the help of volunteers from Branches (Homeless refuge in E17) and The Woodhouse, Terling and St Margaret’s Association our garden is now ready for use and we are offering growing spaces (small allotments) to Buxton School families.
In exchange for a growing space we ask growers and gardeners to help the school maintain the grounds and projects within it for use as an outdoor learning environment. Those projects include; growing crops to encourage full use of the garden, sowing and nurturing traditional crops for cooking, preserving for community/school use, looking after the flora and fauna of the area by creating a variety of habitats, including bat and bird boxes, hedgehog hides and insect hotels. Ultimately we want your support to create learning opportunities to students at the school and the community through a range of activities.
Growing spaces are available to parents of Buxton students.
