Marlpit Community Gardens
The Marlpit Community Gardens are a short walk from our Nursery, so whenever we get the chance we take groups of children to visit. Here are some of the things that we get up to.
When we first arrive at the gardens we look at the map and talk about what we're going to be doing and how we keep safe while we're here.
There are lots of different flowers, fruits and vegetables that need taking care of. The children help to prepare the ground for planting and give the plants plenty of water to drink.
Once the fruit and vegetables are fully grown the children help to harvest them and take them back to Nursery to share with the other children...if there are any left!
The children love to pay the horses a visit, and even sometimes get to feed them.
