EAGerBunch - Ellon Academy Gardeners
EAGerBunch are the Ellon Academy Gardeners. They grow fruit, vegetables, flowers and trees, encourage wildlife and enjoy hosting events in their garden. Community groups help maintain the space and enjoy relaxing there too. The group learns horticultural skills, personal responsibility and teamwork.
Some examples of past events are: bird watching, staff BBQ, plant sale, Halloween movie showing (a short film by pupils), and a soup share for the volunteers.
The group is also building a memorial garden to remember lost pupils and staff.
In 2022, the group were recognised with a Keep Scotland Beautiful 'Beautiful Scotland & It's Your Neighbourhood' discretionary award - joint winner of the Involving Children and Young People Award.
