ELMS Bank School and Unsworth Community Hub will be holding a number of charity plant sales to raise funds for the establishment of a school reflection garden.
The sales take place on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Unsworth Community Hub.
The students kept their green fingers busy by planting seeds, watering the seedlings and repotting cuttings to get everything ready.
Bedding plants, herbs, houseplants, vegetables, sweet peas, nasturtiums, fuchsias, flowering geraniums and much more will be available.
All proceeds will go to a garden of reflection at Elms Bank in memory of teacher Adam Foster, who died of cancer last year.
Adam was a valued member of the school’s teaching team for over 15 years.
A spokesperson for Elms Bank said: “The Garden of Reflection will be a place for students, staff and his family to remember Adam and other colleagues and students whom we have sadly lost over the years. .
“Fundraising for the Garden of Reflection project has been underway for a few months. Our Just Giving page raised over £ 1000 to cover the total costs. ”
Unsworth Community Hub will also host a bric-a-brac stand and hot and cold drinks and on-the-go snacks will be available for purchase.
The plant sale was funded by generous donations from Morrisons Whitefield, B&Q Bury, Tesco, Walnut Allotments, Incredible Edibles Prestwich and staff from Elms Bank School and volunteers from the Unsworth Community Hub.
