Hartley Botanic Inspires Children to Build Their Own Greenhouses at Primary School
It is not every day that a greenhouse manufacturer gets to help out and inspire school children, but last month, that’s exactly what Hartley Botanic did.
After receiving a request for brochures from Mr Lane, a KS2 teacher at Edwards Hall Primary School in Southend-on-Sea, Hartley quickly sent out the booklets and were surprised to receive a letter of thanks just a few weeks later.
In the letter, Mr Lane thanked Hartley Botanic and wrote that:
“The children were able to use your existing designs to plan and create their own mini greenhouses in teams.
“The children learnt about design, basic construction methods and how to use tools safely and accurately though the project (and had a lot of fun!)”
Educating people about gardening and food is something that Hartley Botanic has always taken seriously. A spokesperson for the company said:
Educating people about gardening and food is something that Hartley Botanic has always taken seriously. Johnny Mobasher, MD of Hartley Botanic said:
“We have always tried our best to educate people about the benefits of growing their own food, and we have the best writers and gardening minds on our blog to help us do that.
“To find that we have also helped school children in this regard is extra special however, and we are very happy to learn that Mr Lane’s class enjoyed designing and creating their own greenhouses for the school.”
