ARCHIVE PROJECT Green Fingers Gardening Club, Summer 2019

Gardening for Children at St George’s Primary

As part of the Happiness Garden initiative, Revd Vanessa Elston led the Green Fingers Gardening Club, helping children at the School to learn about planting and tending the allotments, and supporting the development of the Happiness Garden. Vanessa brought together a sculptor, Darcy Turner, and the poet Susan de Nordland, to work with the children to explore the theme of gardens. Tree poems and wire sculptures of Goldfinches and Peregrine Falcons were made by pupils in years 4 and 5, and are now attached to the fences around the garden.
