Clifton School is now a TREEmendous School and will be holding classes outside in their newly created outdoor learning area.
Over 900 native trees and shrubs were planted using a special “lasagne/layered gardening” method that sees compost/clippings and cardboard layered on top of grass. This provides nutrients to the soil while at the same time keeping the area weed free.
Clifton School is actively educating its students about environmental conservation and this dedicated hands-on area will help this.
The planting was completed through the collaborative effort of more than 90 members of the school including past and future pupils, local community, Mazda Foundation Trustees and the team from Project Crimson.
