Northmuir Primary School is home to a 16m x 6m poly-tunnel, which doubles up as a growing space and outdoor classroom. They grow all sorts of exciting fruit and vegetables!!
The growing area is continually being developed, along with an orchard and wildlife pond. With biodiversity and habitat creation at the top of the school’s priorities, they’ve planted wildflowers and a hedge to create wildlife corridors.
During 2021 the pupils and staff grew 200kg of edible produce, with the help of our Growing Leader, Emily. Read about their bumper potato harvest here.
In 2024 our Community Gardener, Linzi, will be working with Northmuir Primary to revive their polytunnel and outdoor beds.
