Oaks Primary Academy gardeners have just been awarded their Level 4 RHS school gardening award. To achieve this they wrote about and showed how they protected crops from different animals and pests. They had a mini garden enterprise at the Christmas Fayre with pine cone decorations and they have also demonstrated that they can grow and harvest different vegetables during the year.
As part of their award, they also receive seeds worth over £100 – perfect to start their spring planting!
Their work towards the final award, Level 5, is well underway with a Community Cafe project.
