Give Peas a Chance - Saturday Programme
We are recruiting 12 enthusiastic children from Y6 at Buxton Junior School to take part in the first programme of our new project, Give Peas a Chance. Funded by the Cadent Foundation, our project aims to introduce children to the pleasures of horticulture and the benefits it can have on their health and wellbeing and on our environment.
The programme will run on Saturdays from 1 May 2021 to 26 June 2021 with a break for half term. Two further programmes will run in 2021-2022: one in the Autumn term and one in the Summer term.
The children will not only gain knowledge and skills in gardening, they themselves will also grow in confidence as they improve team working and communication skills. All of this whilst having fun.
