Green-fingered youngsters from the gardening club at Bugthorpe Primary School have been busy this term selling daffodils to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
They planted some bulbs in individual pots, looked after them carefully and are now seeing the results of their work. The daffodils have been on sale at the school and the children have raised more than £30 for the charity.
The gardening club meets after school and gives the children the opportunity to work in the school grounds on a number of projects.
As well as growing plants and vegetables, which they use themselves and sell the surplus, they have laid paths, built willow sculptures, maintained the school pond, built insect houses and bird boxes and dug new flower beds.
The next project the school and its gardening club will be working on will be the designing and developing of a garden to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary.
