Bottle Greenhouse

Bottle Greenhouse

Spring of 2016:
Meadow Park Academy:
Here we built new raised beds. A new concept for this school.
Moorlands: We refurbished their existing raised beds. Moorlands is very well organized with a dedicated staff member.
Oxford Road Community & St Anne's, Caversham: Here we supplied and/or delivered top soil, compost and planters. These two schools were very active in their gardening and nature activities and it was inspirational to see what can be achieved if there are dedicated.

Spring of 2017: The Follow Up!
Oxford Road Community:
They are still going great guns thanks to TA Emily Williams. They were very satisfied with their existing project, but Emily indicated that they would love to have a plastic bottle greenhouse. If we could build the frame the children would collect the bottles and do the rest. Taking up the challenge for this who better than our own master builder/engineer/fixer extraordinaire Tony Cowling.
