Gardening in Old Buckenham

 Volunteer gardener wanted

At Old Buckenham High School they realise the importance of being eco-friendly and are educating their students on the benefits of re-cycling, saving energy and growing their own food. They have recently prepared an area of the school for an allotment and are in the process of purchasing a polytunnel. They are now seeking a keen gardener volunteer who would be willing to take on the allotment. You would be free to use the area as your own to grow your own produce. All the school ask in return, is that selected groups of children, who are genuinely interested in gardening and will be supervised by members of staff, can be involved with hands-on help and have the opportunity to taste the produce. This will enable the students to gain valuable knowledge of plant science, wildlife and environmental issues and hopefully encourage a few green fingered students to ‘grow their own’ in the future. If you are interested in this opportunity please email the school via
