Growing Our Community Together
Growing Our Community Together is a partnership between Brockmoor Primary School and Friends of Marsh Park and Lawyers Field (FOMPLF). FOMPLF are a Brierley Hill Community Group, who's aim is improving Marsh Park and Lawyers Field for everyone. The partnership was to get young and old working together in our community green spaces learning how to grow plants and vegetables and creating an area for the enjoyment of all.
We initially worked together with FOMPLF in summer 2016 to grow some flowers here at the school and plant these up in Marsh Park for the community to enjoy.
This led to an idea about extending this work in a larger scale project to create an Orchard and Community Garden at Lawyers Field Brierley Hill and a learning zone here at the school. You can read more about this on the learning zone page of the website.
Now the project has been completed the children have started a planting project and are working with Mrs Bond, Mrs Gutteridge and some of the volunteers from FOMPLF. Here is what they have been doing:
