Volunteer gardener at the local school
Over the last year I keep seeing schools with raised gardening beds which are no longer being used. Time and again there are a few old plants gone to seed. I asked why and was told ‘ we have no time’…’there is no budget for the plants and compost we need’…. ‘Our caretaker knows nothing about gardening’.
My grandsons who are regular helpers in my garden did not even know their school had a garden.
