Gliondar Mara are looking after our herb patch in our garden this year. They have grown chives from seed and successfully planted them out into our school garden just before Easter.
Our school recently were awarded a herb patch from Meath County Council as part of their gardening in schools scheme. We were thrilled to get it! It contains some unusual herbs such as heartease, lemonbalm and camomile along with old favourites such as parsley and thyme.
Ms Carragher`s class were the lucky recipients of the prize. Our picture shows two of our gardening committee delivering the prized herbs to Ms Carragher`s class. We`re looking forward to the herbs being moved out to our herb plot just as soon as they get strong enough to be transplanted. And we're looking forward to having a tasty treat with our herbs before the summer holidays!
