From composting to kitchen at Westbury school

This Is Wiltshire: School garden School garden

Volunteers from Danone Baby Nutrition helped make African keyhole gardens at Bitham Brook Primary School.

They worked in all weathers to create a vegetable garden in the school grounds with eye-catching keyhole gardens.

The school’s headteacher David Ross, thanked all of them for giving their time and money to help the children understand about recycling and growing. Vegetables grown in the garden will be used in the school kitchen.

Kim Gates, who managed the project said Danone was happy to have helped the school and “as a nutrition company, this is at the heart of what we do”.

The gardens are based on a Global Garden Project, assisted by Jane Talbot from WISE in conjunction with Barter’s Plant Centre in Chapmanslade, which enables waste food to be turned into compost which then fertilises the soil.
