Growing Ideas & Family Learning at Oakfield Primary School

We delivered a combined Growing Spaces-Family Learning sign-up session (for Growing Spaces) at Oakfield Primary School, Ryde, today. Growing Spaces is a raised bed project delivered by Growing Ideas Limited in partnership with Medina Housing Association. Parents and children watched the Growing Spaces 2008 video before taking part in a series of fun and informative growing-themed activities – questions were answered and seedlings and sunflower seeds were planted in pots outside the classroom. Many families signed up for their free raised bed and everybody collaborated to draw up plans for an enormous raised bed to be built on the grassy area in front of two Year 4 classes. Check back soon to see what the bed looks like.
