Pride in our Community Schools
The aim of the 'Pride in Our Community Schools Competition' is to support pupils, teachers in County Cork to bring nature, wildlife, plants and colour into their school garden/grounds, to promote horticulture and biodiversity and to give students a chance to interact with the environment and nature in a positive way. The competition is open to all primary schools in County Cork who have a school garden or are in the process of developing one.
Griffins are offering support to all the schools involved. Margaret will be giving regular helpful hints on how to create a productive and educational garden. You can follow this on this page, on Facebook or subscribe to an email newsletter to get these highly useful updates!
We have been working to promote and encourage children to get into gardening for many years and have created a very successful kids gardening club. So we know the value of teaching children about the great outdoors. We also know that children are inquisitive, hungry for information and have a desire for quick turnaround and this knowledge informs our tips and guides. We aim to continuously have great gardening tips and ideas to help you create a winning school garden!
Children, teachers and parents/guardians are encouraged to contact us for this advice. You can even send us photos of your garden or plants, so we can really give the best advice possible on getting great results!
If you have require any advice please email us on:
Best of luck everyone!
