Introduction to Ladysmith G.R.O.W.
What started at the beginning of October as just one of our parents planting a few plants has rapidly grown into a group of parent/carer volunteers who are passionate about helping Ladysmith Junior School to provide an outdoor environment for our children which:
From this small start the Ladysmith G.R.O.W. (Gardening, Recreation, Outdoor learning and Wellbeing) project took root and following consultations with pupils, teachers, parents and the Devon Wildlife Trust, a core working party has discussed the resulting ideas producing a grand plan which is divided into eight manageable projects.
Although we intend to complete each project in order of priority, there will be some overlap as donated materials, manpower or funds become available. The majority of the work will be completed by our volunteers and caretaker, except where specialist skills are required or safety is an issue.
