In the past few years, many schools have created school garden projects. This has usually has two aims;
to improve the school environment and to provide an 'outside classroom' with opportunities to explore
curriculum aims via new and exciting means.
Foundry School in Handsworth are one of the schools that has taken advantage of the project in 2003 to plant roses
in the school gardens.
Shades of Black can assist those schools that are considering or require further assistance
with their school garden projects. With our experiences from the HELP project, our
volunteers will work closely with teachers and pupils, parents and other stake holders to turn your project into a
successful one that will be appreciated for many school generations to come.
If you are a parent and think your children's school could benefit from a school garden, why
not suggest it to the school? Suggest Shade of Black as a source of help with the project too.
