Holiday Duties

During the Easter Holiday break it will be necessary for someone to keep an eye on the school garden over the next fourteen or so days. Outdoor crops should be fine from cultural points of view, although some form of netting is advisable to give protection from cats, pigeons, squirrels and foxes. We are building several cages from pallet salvaged timber (the double size pallets which are used to carry plaster board are proving useful here. Rolls of second hand, fine mesh wire netting have been given to us and we plan to deliver these to some schools in the new term. Members of a local Horticultural Society are helping one school to build cages clad in Environmesh, kindly donated by Agralan. The dimensions are one metre high, just over a metre wide and two metres long. They are light enough in weight for two students to tip off and will provide enough cover for full grown crops of cabbages, calabrese, cauliflower and garden peas.
