St Francis RC Primary School (The Patch)
The Patch is a space where schools and communities come together to explore and enjoy the outdoors. The group participates in the Dundee Flower and Food Festival, the RHS Big soup event, the Eden project Big Lunch and other events. It has RHS level 5 status and awards from Dundee City Council. Families and a holiday group maintain areas where fruit and vegetables are grown, and extensive wildflowers have been planted this year along with areas for animal habitation, e.g. birds, squirrels, bats, etc. Recycling is well established including plans for natural water collection and a Willow house. Funds have been awarded from Tesco, Volunteer Action and Community Regeneration. Education and enjoyment run through all of the projects and activities.
