Maintaining the school garden is all about doing little jobs often! It’s not that hard if everyone pitches in.
THE PLANTING TEAM
The Planting Team has to get to work whenever there is a space in the garden for a new crop.
The team has to research which vegies to grow to suit the season, prepare the soil, decide where the plants will go and then carefully plant them into the garden. All this information is in The Garden section of the Smarty Plants website.
The planting team will also have to put in climbing frames for plants such as beans or peas that like to scramble up off the ground. They should make sure that they check that the reticulation is getting to where the new plants have been placed.
If you are on the planting team, wear gloves, a hat and sunscreen and do this job early in the day before it gets too hot.
