SE Essex Organic Gardeners - A School Garden - why?
Kulvinder Kaur Johal, Assistant Head Teacher/Science Co-ordinator at Northbury Primary School, Barking is going to talk about her school garden and what a difference it brings to the pupils of their large multicultural school. They have over 900 pupils, speaking over 45 languages between them. Many of them have no garden or green space to call their own. Children share a play space with each other but nothing of their own. Their school garden has been a focal point for them, so much so that they have achieved an RHS level school award. All was almost lost when the school garden suffered an arson attack last year, but now they've got their thriving garden back.
