Backing local primary schools is a “must do” for garden centres according to owner Tim Goodwin of Fosseway Garden Centre in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire. Fosseway linked with a local school when the centre’s owners discovered a family friend was keen to create a school garden. Goodwin said: “All garden centres should do it. We were really pleased that children wanted to become involved with plants and were delighted to donate to the school a selection of raspberry bushes and fruit trees. Plants producing edible crops always seem very popular with younger gardeners. It’s important that children are encouraged to garden at a young age and we are always pleased when schools encourage this.”
AGRATECH recently asked our customers for help with planting ideas for a sensory garden for a local school for children with learning and pyhsical disabilites, and we hope to move this project forward in the new school year!
