Gosden House School has 44 acres of fantastic grounds. The grounds are a wonderful space for all our children and young people to explore, learn about plants, do some digging, engage with the wildlife and simply have a brilliant time. 44 acres is a full-time job to keep under control and quite time consuming! so if you feel you would like to help us with our outdoor spaces please do get in touch! Please drop Lisa James a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our outdoor spaces consist:
- A fabulous allotment area including a polytunnel for seedlings, cuttings and less hardy plants.
- A gorgeous walled garden, which we are hoping to rejuvenate with the help of some volunteers.
- An amazing orchard with many fruit trees. We collect the apples each year and this is another area where we would welcome help.
We are incredibly lucky to have the wonderful Etta who runs our allotment area, supports the classes with their outdoor learning tasks and manages all the hard work involved. Lucy is our brilliant volunteer who also helps run this area. Our superb caretakers are tireless in keeping our acreage under control, but again, we would love some help!
Have a look below at what goes on at Gosden during the year.
The Gardening Year at Gosden
Key Stage 4 Plant Care pupils have started supplying and delivering produce they have grown to Mel, our chef, in the school kitchen. This produce will be used in the school lunches - hurrah! We will be providing Mel with a weekly delivery. Today we delivered lettuce, Pak Choi and chives - yum!
