Fri 12 May 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 BST
The school wish to create an outdoor classroom and learning area. There is an area within the school grounds that would lend itself perfectly to the project. Approximately 7 x 10 metres in size covered in grass with three trees which would also provide shade. The school would like the area to be levelled, and some low level sleepers installed as a boundary. A membrane would be laid which would be covered in bark. Installation of some benchs and table would enable the children to study but also quietly relax. If possible the volunteers could also build and install some basic planters to create a mini beast and vegetable patch areas.
Skills required gardening, digging, barrowing, and basic DIY and woodwork skills.
Clothing to wear: Robust outdoor clothing gloves and shoes. Possible waterproofs.
Materials: Total cost of project estimated at £800 School can provide £400 in funds. Volunteers would need to fundraise/source materials to an equivalent amount. Volunteers would need to bring their own tools equipment etc.
