Monquhitter Primary School
Primary 1 and Primary 2 classes at Monquhitter Primary worked together to come up with their Pocket Garden design. They each made sketches after a garden walk and talk about the school garden and gardens at home, particularly during lockdown. They decided to celebrate Nature on our Doorstep with a wildlife garden.
Willow appears on the vilage clan badge and the children have used it all through the garden. They learned how to weave it and created all sorts of features and structures from it including bird feeders and a tower for peas to climb.
