CoPE Gardening Club Appeal

Years 10 and 11 CoPE, together with the Gardening Club, are planning a revamp of the garden at the rear of the Tydeman Centre.
In the past couple of years we have grown a variety of vegetables, fruit and flowers and we are already planning next year's crops.
We now need to renovate the original raised beds, and are appealing to the local community for any useful materials, tools, compost and seeds / plants etc, any of which would be very much appreciated.
Gardening is great exercise for our pupils, helping them to feel happy and boosting their development. Research has found that pupils in schools which encouraged gardening became more resilient, confident and live healthier lives.
Thank you in advance for any support you can offer, even sharing our appeal with others in the community would be apreciated greatly.
Please contact Mrs Linda Martin at The Malling School if you would like to donate or require any more information.
