Rebuild fire-ravaged school garden
We urgently need your help to rebuild a prized school garden that has been devastated by a vicious fire.
Pupils and staff from Northbury Primary School were distraught to find their beloved organic vegetable garden burnt to the ground. Their shed, greenhouse and raised beds have all been incinerated, destroying pupils’ gardening equipment and killing their lovingly tended crops. These all need to be replaced.
Northbury Primary school is in an area of high deprivation in London with many pupils having special educational needs. The garden provided over 900 children, their families and the local community with a little green haven, giving them vital access to outdoor space and the opportunity to enjoy growing and eating fresh, organic produce. The garden has also been instrumental in improving the health and diets of pupils at the school through the Soil Association’s Food for Life programme, as they work towards achieving the presitigious Gold Award.
The fire has done a lot of damage, but with your help and the school’s determination, we can rebuild Northbury’s garden and buy new equipment to get the children back outdoors and eating home-grown, organic produce again in no time.
