2018 Certificate Level 4 - Thriving

The group has built a large community garden on the land provided by the Goodshepherd Centre. It focuses on growing edibles and uses the produce onsite, givies it to local groups and feeds it back into the school kitchen etc. It is currently a five-star RHS garden with a green flag. The science teacher is the RHS champion of the year (www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgjgsVGxxfE). The group works with a network of community gardens, environmental groups and other schools. It is currently expanding to form nature trail which will be utilised by the local primary and the young people on site. The overall aim is to create a community hub to form a large network.
