Burghley Gardens Team Assists With Build Of Kitchen Garden For Skills For Work & Living Students

The Burghley Gardens team generously donated their time and efforts to help the students of the Skills for Work & Living department to build a ‘Kitchen Garden’.

SCSFWL Green House2022 27

After lay­ing the foun­da­tions at the begin­ning of the aca­d­e­m­ic year, the Burgh­ley Gar­dens Team returned to the Stam­ford Col­lege cam­pus grounds to set the fin­ish­ing touch­es, along­side those study­ing the Skills for Work & Liv­ing, Ani­mal & Hor­ti­cul­ture course. The stun­ning project con­sists of raised beds, grav­el paths, an arch­way for climb­ing plants, and two bug hous­es, which stu­dents enjoyed fill­ing with vol­canic rock and wood. The Col­lege depart­ment was award­ed £200 from the Dorothy Cecil Trust via Burgh­ley towards the cost of all wood­work, with the remain­der of the garden’s mate­ri­als kind­ly donat­ed by Andrew Hinch, a local groundswork con­trac­tor. Not­cutts Gar­den Cen­tre have since donat­ed £100 worth of veg­etable seeds for stu­dents to put to good use in the garden.

Helen Con­lon, Hor­ti­cul­ture Lec­tur­er in the Skills for Work & Liv­ing depart­ment said, The stu­dents had a great day work­ing along­side the gar­den­ers. The Skills for Work & Liv­ing course is about prepar­ing stu­dents for what they can expect in the work­place and to under­stand what indus­try stan­dards might look like — the build has giv­en the stu­dents a sense of own­er­ship over the project as well as con­fi­dence in their own abil­i­ties. Now, all stu­dents from the Skills for Work & Liv­ing depart­ment will be able to grow pro­duce from seed to har­vest, and then taste and cook their pick­ings. This whole process backs up and illus­trates much of the sci­ence work that they learn in the class­room, from top­ics such as seed sow­ing and ger­mi­na­tion, prop­a­ga­tion, parts of a plant, healthy soil, photosynthesis.

Many thanks to the Burgh­ley Gar­dens team, the Dorothy Cecil Trust, Andrew Hinch and Not­cutts Gar­den Cen­tre for their generosity.
