“The eldest boy who joined us said, 'A lettuce seed is so tiny, it's as small as an ant's foot!' Such a brilliant observation.” – SFM Gardener
“The buddy approach worked really well, particularly as one of the older British girls spoke their native language. We did a lot through modelling and demonstrating. When we were planting seeds in small groups, the sense of calm and delicacy was wonderful.
"All the children responded to the task at hand and were very gentle and careful in the planting. It really was a change of dynamic and time for everyone to focus and relax. They each prepared and planted a row and certainly showed ownership of that work - 'That's my row', 'Those are my radishes'.” – SFM Gardener
We are keen to continue this wonderful work and are currently exploring funding options. If this is something you want to support, then please get in touch with our Development Manager Dela Foster: firstname.lastname@example.org
