Setting up a gardening club
A group of children from Haworth Primary School are helping local people in the village with their allotments. After suffering anti-social behaviour at the allotments, gardeners decided to educate the children and it has now became so popular that a gardening club has been established. The children interviewed explain about crop rotation, how to plant seeds and how much they enjoy gardening, which is also good exercise. This clip was first published on BBC News Online on 4 February 2009. Please note this clip is only available in Flash.
The clip could be used as an example of a successful project which has really benefited and had a positive impact on the local community. It could be used as a stimulus for discussion or a project where pupils set up their own project to benefit their local community. For more on this type of project see the BBC's Breathing Places campaign - bbc.co.uk/breathingplaces/.
