school receives free trees giveaway from garden centre
First School has recently received a donation of young trees from
a garden centre.
Elm Garden & Pet Centre recently held a sapling giveaway for
worthy causes on a first come first served basis and has donated
the trees to the school for its Eco Schools Grounds Project.
Blacklock, Eco School Coordinator at the school, said: "The
Eco Schools committee were keen to be in with a chance of being
picked for some free saplings and compiled a letter to request
some for the school. We were delighted to have been chosen to
receive some of the free saplings."
would like to create an area behind our Elliot hut, which currently
has fencing but no trees, to encourage more birds, insects and
wildlife into our grounds and we think the saplings will do really
well to help this. The children will enjoy seeing the different
wildlife that the saplings attract."
Elm Garden & Pet Centre at Monkton Heathfield near Taunton
runs the sapling giveaway scheme annually. Schools, charities
and not-for-profit organisations are invited to receive of 50
and 100 indigenous British varieties.
