Pupils sow the seeds for new wildlife havens in Keynsham
Published on: 06 Feb 2017
Members of St Keyna Primary School’s Green Team have been given a great start to the new year, receiving a selection of gifts from Wyevale Garden Centre in Keynsham for their school wildlife garden.
Among the gifts were a selection of vegetable and wild flower mix seeds, two insect houses and gift vouchers.
The children from the gardening club quickly got to work and have since installed the insect houses.
Over the next couple of months they will start sowing the seeds in the school garden and are looking forward to watching the wild flowers grow, creating some much-needed wildlife areas.
It is hoped that the wildflowers will provide colour throughout the summer and attract pollinating insects such as honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies and moths.
Eoin Keane, Wyevale Garden Centre manager, said: “The team at Keynsham Wyevale are absolutely delighted to support any local school initiative that teaches the importance of local and global biodiversity.
“We cannot commend St Keyna’s Green Team and Keynsham in Bloom enough for striking up such a worthwhile partnership.
“We are looking forward to supporting them and many other local schools and organisations throughout 2017.”
