Springfield House Community Special School

PROUD of our Roots

Plant  and Share

Springfield House School is taking part in Plant and Share Month, when communities across the country will be joining together to sow, grow and share. We are inviting all of our families and other members of the school community to take part. We will provide links each week to resources that help us to celebrate all the reasons it's good to grow: Growing for All, Growing to Eat, Growing for Joy and Growing for Nature.                                                                                                                                                                                                            
 Week 4: Growing for Nature - 13-20 May
   Bees, butterflies and other pollinators are nature's superheroes, helping to produce the food we eat.
   Growing nature-friendly plants is a great way to do your bit for the earth. Look out for a packet of     wildflower seeds coming home with your child this week and sow them in your garden or in a planter       to celebrate World Bee Day on Saturday 20 May!

   Getting out in the garden can do wonders for your wellbeing.
