After the winter months, Kirk Hammerton CE Primary School, based in North Yorkshire, decided to embrace Springtime by organising a gardening afternoon and invited parents and friends along to help tidy up the outside of their school.

Landscape supplier, Green-tech, heard about the schools project and offered them free John Chambers Wildflower seed to brighten up their outside space.

Jenni Kirkwood, School Secretary from Kirk Hammerton CE Primary School commented:

“We were delighted to receive a kind donation from Green-tech of some John Chambers wildflower seed which will bring beautiful colourful flowers to a patch of unloved grassed area.  This area is situated in the class 2 outdoor area and the children will enjoy its’ splendour when working outside this summer. It will also make a grand entrance for any visitors, as it is near the main school entrance.

The children will have the added bonus of learning about wildflowers first hand and how they grow by experiencing all the stages from sowing the seeds to watching the flowers bloom.

The school would like to thank Green-tech for their kind gift and for bringing colour and joy to our school.”

John Chambers Wildflower seed is owned by Green-tech and is one of the largest independent suppliers of wildflower seeds in the UK. Rebecca Gethin, Wild Flower Sales Assistant added:

“We are involved in many community landscaping projects throughout the UK and are always delighted to help especially when the project is local to us.  It was lovely to see the children learning about gardening and enjoying planting their wildflower seeds.  We look forward to visiting again when the gardens are in full bloom.”
