Buckley Freemasons have donated £430 to Elfed High School to enable The School Garden Project to purchase a greenhouse.

The cheque gifted by Grand Master Mr A Turvey, Secretary Mr D Turvey, it was presented to the school to recently.

Miss G Smith who runs The Garden Project said that “the purchase of this greenhouse will help the students expand on their knowledge of growing their own fruit and vegetables.”

“The aim is for the students to grow enough produce so that they are able to take it home and share it with their family”.

Mrs Bennett and Mrs Smith, started The Garden Project earlier in the year.

“It has been a great place for students to get involved with growing their own fruit and vegetables as well as learning how to care for plants and flowers and how to maintain the garden.”

“This opportunity has allowed students from all years to take part in the project and has given them the platform to expand their practical skills as well as improving their wellbeing.” Miss Smith said.

The project has also supported students who wish to proceed with a career in Horticulture.

Students have already planned their planting calendar for the spring and are looking forward to using their new greenhouse.

“Without the support from the Freemason this would have not been possible.” Miss Smith said.
