Biodiversity is all around us - from wildflowers and insects to mammals and birds. It includes woodlands, meadows, wetlands and other natural habitats, as well as man-made places such as plantations, fields, canals and gardens – even ‘wasteland' can be valuable for wildlife.
We depend on a healthy natural environment for many things, from food and medicine to flood control and leisure. Nature is good for our health and well-being.
At Millbrook we are helping biodiversity with the Gardening Club and Forest School.
Here are some of the things we have done:
Our school is committed to healthy eating and food growing... Every class has a different vegetable family that they learn about, plant, grow and harvest...
Year One: The Pea and Bean Family
Year Two: The Onion Family
Year Three: The Cucumber and Sweetcorn Family
Year Four: The Cabbage Family
Year Five: The Carrot and Beet Family
Year Six: The Potato and Tomato Family
Our Nursery and Foundation Stage also have their own vegetable beds and growing areas.
And if that is not enough the Family Gardening Club meets every week!
