  • Buck the Trend backs Green Fingers at Buckfastleigh school

    Posted on June 14th, 2009 admin No comments

    Last week we donated a brand new compost bin to Buckfastleigh school to support the school’s vegetable-growing plans.

    Children at the school have launched a Green Fingers Club to work on a veggie patch, look after the school grounds and do gardening work in the town’s Millennium Orchard. The weekly club is led by teacher Jo Woods and is open to all classes, involving children from 4 to 11 years old.

    Nick Banwell, headteacher at Buckfastleigh school, said: “Thanks to Buck the Trend for supporting the Green Fingers Club. It is great to see the community once again supporting the school.”
