In Green Designs - one of St. Andrews' enriching extracurricular clubs - students are busy transforming a corner of our campus into an attractive green paradise. This outdoor design project engages students' creativity, as well as developing their practical and problem-solving skills.
Since September, our Green Designs students have been working with experts from the charity Scholars of Sustenance to design a garden. The project combines gardening with art and design, and learning what it takes to grow plants and keep them healthy.
After rain last week, the garden was looking lush in the afternoon sunshine and our green-fingered students were out working in the garden. This week they were re-potting some shrubs that had outgrown their pots and had started putting down roots in the sandy path areas. Our gardeners worked together in pairs, ensuring each plant had sufficient soil and space to grow. The students enjoyed getting stuck in and spending time nurturing the attractive space they've created.
We're really excited to watch the transformation of this leafy corner - check back to see how the garden has grown later this year!
