We’re delighted that our Community Garden has been featured in School House magazine this spring.
“Founded in early 2022 by a group of green-fingered parents the Hampton Court House Community Garden has matured into a wonderful space nestled within the ivy-covered walls of the school. The produce that is grown, from tomatoes and pumpkins to strawberries and radishes, forms much of the seasonal school lunch menus.
Home-grown strawberries go into infused-water coolers, while colourful salads are seasoned with nasturtium seeds and decorated with their brilliant flowers. Nothing goes to waste: the leaves of the nasturtium plant also go into home-made pesto, and the enormous pumpkin was saved to be the centre-piece of the dining table on Halloween!
From the Gardening Club to the Early Years Forest School, the garden is enjoyed by all and provides a wonderful opportunity to teach the pupils about sustainability and the beauty of nature.”

“Our dedicated team of parent gardeners have devoted their time and energy over the past year in creating a beautiful garden space to nourish and educate our pupils on nature and sustainability through garden-grown ingredients in school lunches to the weekly gardening clubs. It’s wonderful that their passionate work has received this recognition by School House!”
