Bailey Green Gardening Club
In 2012 Dig It projects installed an Allotment Garden at Bailey Green Primary School in Newcastle. Since then members of the Bailey Green Gardening Club have been really busy making the most out of their allotment garden. We really love to see the children having fun as they work digging, planting, potting, watering and weeding are all the kind of jobs that children enjoy taking part in and they are learning so much about where their food comes from as they go. It’s great to see pics of home grown vegetables the end results of all their hard work

Observe changes across the four seasons.

Explore the part flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants.
