Well its been a busy old few months down at Growing Futures. Learners from KTS started the year, working through the cold, wet and mud to put up our new classroom, landscaping,painting and garden maintenance.Big shout to Robson from KTS Yate, who really got involved and worked hard.  Featured imageLearners then planned and sowed seeds into the polytunnel, researching the types of veg and their timings, planting radishes, onion, potatoes, lettuces, rainbow chard, spinach, pak choi, beans, peas tomatoes amongst others. With Danny’s help, lFeatured imageearners  grow over 300 plants in the polytunnel. KTS Learners are now 2 weeks into the Summer programme. Learners built a large 13ft sq raised beds planting out, the plants from the polytunnel, Making a microgreens garden out of some old church pews.Still loads more to do, looking forward to Friday when our first volunteers begin.

What else has happened…..oh yeah…I went over to Golden Hills amazing community gardens for a couple of days at the end of April, working with Creative Youth Network and the brilliant Lucy, teaching young people how to build planter boxes.
