Our recycled raised beds
Ash Class have finally finished making our recycled raised beds and they even have some plants in them now. We made the beds using ecobricks, which we attached to a pallet frame using screws, then covered them with old towels dipped in cement to make a stronger edging and stop the light degrading the ecobricks. We used a mixture of cardboard, wood chips and topsoil to fill the beds which meant we had to move 1 tonne of topsoil into the beds. Finally, we planted some perennial plants in. In a few weeks, we will add the annual flowers that we have sowed in pots in the classroom. Hopefully the weather will improve so the plants can start growing and maybe even flowering which we hope will provide plenty of food for bees and other insects.
