Over the last term, the Eco committee have been visiting the Oatlands Community Allotments, where we have been shown around by its chairman, Mr Barton. He has also let us plant some vegetables on one of his beds. We have worked together to plant broad beans and leeks. Fortunately, they are growing well and will be ready to eat in the Summer. At the allotments, we have talked about how to keep our plants organic without having creatures eat our plants. We are planning to put crushed egg shells around our plants to keep the snails away.
