The wildflower bed at the Mining Wheel has now been seeded, we look forward to seeing what it brings...
The flowers in Alfreton were looking beautiful this week. Winter bedding is next on our list to keep the area looking bright and cheerful!

Look at our beautiful vegetables. 🌱

As we progress through our Food for Life journey, the pupils have been working really hard with Matt to grow a selection of vegetables. We now have a fabulous supply of tomatoes, courgettes, radishes, marrows, beans, potatoes and lettuce. 🥔🥬🥒🍅

Our pupils have prepared the area, planted seeds, watered them, and monitored them as they've grown, developing their understanding of how to care for plants and vegetables. 👏🏻
