Visit to Leaf Creative

12 pupils from St Briavels visited Leaf Creative at Howle Hill and met with garden designer Peter Dowle, who has won RHS medals at Chelsea and Best in Show at Malvern. The children discussed their garden design and even suggested ideas to improve Mr Dowle's design! It was wonderful to listen to them discuss how to build a show garden. We had a tour of the nursery and selected some small trees to add to our design. Hopefully our bluebells will be blooming!


If you would like to get involved in any way, we are holding a gardening workshop at St Briavels during the Easter Holidays:

Friday 12th April (10am -2pm) Everyone welcome! Bring a picnic! Bring some plants!

The PTA Ground Force Team will be on hand, continuing to improve our environment, so there will be lots going. We had a great weekend a few weeks ago! It would be lovely to see you there!


Redbrook children will be getting involved after the Easter Holidays, building our replica Tintern Abbey Bug Hotel.

We're all inspired ready for our Wye Forest Federation Garden, which will be on display from the 9th-12th May at RHS Malvern Spring Festival.

If you would like to come and see our garden, please use the following discount code to get tickets: MSF19AHSB 


Please email (anaylor@wff.gloucs.sch.uk) me any pictures of your children gardening over the Easter Holidays. It would be lovely to see what they are growing. If you've got any plants that we could use in our garden, we would be very grateful. We're looking for as many blue flowers as we can find to make our wye river, ornamental grass to make tussocks. Look out for the plant list...
