School to create greenhouse gardening area
2:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
A SCHOOL is hoping to create a new on-site greenhouse as part of a scheme to get students growing their own food.
Tendring Technology College runs a growing competition with year eight students, challenging them to sow seeds, grow vegetables and harvest their crops throughout the year.
The Thorpe school is now looking to boost facilities through a supermarket chain’s voucher scheme.
It is appealing for the help of parents to collect 10,000 vouchers from the Morrisons Let’s Grow initiative.
Teachers want to use the vouchers to create a new greenhouse area and bring add more potting equipment to teach pupils about sustainable living.
