Our Jeffrey’s Corner nursery in Dukinfield have been getting their hand mucky and making their very own allotment in the garden. The crocs and lions outdoor area has now been enhanced and the children are growing their very own produce which includes radishes, strawberries, carrots, broadbeans, lettuce, parsnips as well as herbs – curry leaf, oregano, sage etc.
The children have planted different vegetables and herbs which links with learning through growing projects. This aids the children by showing respect for others and a sense of community and wellbeing, working together, counting and sowing the seeds and of course being able to taste what they have grown themselves!
All the children have been planting and watering the new allotment and can’t wait to see the vegetables and herbs start growing.
