The EHS Eco Team hopes to use the grant to develop an allotment and garden space which will benefit all students and staff in the school. The food that is grown will be used in lessons and the school canteen. It will reduce school waste through recycling of food, paper, cardboard, etc.
This space will benefit all members of the school community and especially students and staff that have little or no access to a garden.
The area will not only be a productive but also a beautiful space with an area to sit and will include sensory plants and herbs. This also means it will be a conducive space for some of our work with students with pastoral needs.It will promote the concept of sustainability and the environment. In phase one, it will benefit all year groups (ages 11-19) and then we plan to widen access to our primary school links and selected community groups such as cub scouts in the area.
