Garden Club visit to Cambourne Village College
On a frosty winter day, pupils from year 5 Garden Club enjoyed a visit to Cambourne Village College during Golden time. We were welcomed by Mrs Teo, Joshua and Bailey who introduced us to the RHS awards which they have been working towards from year 7. There are 5 levels in the awards which include learning skills such as planning a garden project and using tools safely. Some pupils at CVC are currently working towards their level 5 award where pupils share their garden with the local community and pass on their skills to others. Joshua and Bailey described how they had worked through different levels of the award, planning their school garden and using the produce in recipes such as cooking soup and bread.
We were taken on a tour of the college raised beds and polytunnel where we harvested winter salad leaves. Joshua and Bailey helped us to sow Pepper, Nasturtium and Pea seeds in egg boxes, which we took home.
We would like to thank everyone at Cambourne Village College who made our visit so enjoyable.
