The school garden is on a site at the front of the school, and is aimed to help encourage wildlife into the school grounds. Work is underway by our caretaker to build a new patio focal point to make it possible to use the garden all year round - with supplies being donated by a local building supplies company.
Last school year, pupils from Yellow class and those participating in the pop-up after school gardening clubs helped plant wildflowers in the tyre tubs and shrubs in a new border to the front of the site. They also created a bug hotel using pallets donated by another company - which is now being maintained as a focal point.
This school year we hope to involved Llangynwyd Rainbows and Brownies, which meet at the school, in planting up a pots focal point and get some seating and herbs planted. Whatever money we spend must come from fundraising events planned by the Llan Dragons, and donations made by our local community (always gratefully received).
We would also like to set up a bank of volunteers among the parents and grandparents who could spare the odd hour or two to come and work on the garden, particularly when planting season begins in March. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Mrs Parry with your details.
