School Grounds Saturday Surgery – 21 April

As anyone who saw our pupils at PEDAL’s organic market on Saturday 7 April will know, PHS’s Eco Team will be holding the above gardening event from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 21 April. Pupils, parents and members of the wider community are all very welcome to come along, see what the Eco Team are working on in our school grounds and also have the opportunity to get involved!

 

Among the jobs you can help us out with are planting new plants, clearing and weeding flowerbeds, fixing the fence and sprucing up bark paths in the biodiversity garden. We also have some planters in the school ground that need a little care.

 

All volunteers will receive a free cup of tea/coffee and a bacon/vegetarian roll in payment for their efforts!

 

Although we have some plants, bark and membrane, wooden pallets for the fence, compost and some tools, we would be very grateful if you could bring your own tools to make sure we have enough to go round. Any unwanted plants or compost would be very welcome too!

 

To give us an idea of numbers for catering (or if you have any questions), please let Miss Bigg know if you plan to attend at sophie.bigg@portobello.edin.sch.uk.
