Project Polytunnel

The children of Marton Primary School wanted to develop the grounds outside their classroom for growing all year round.  So they embarked on ‘Project Polytunnel’ and started by successfully raising funds to buy a polytunnel, shed, tools, raised beds and seeds.  With fantastic support from parents, staff, local businesses and the community, they have built their polytunnel and it is now teeming with life.  Even better, the children have found a way to turn the polytunnel into a small enterprise and make it self-sustaining by selling their produce.  The polytunnel has had a fantastic impact on the whole school community - everyone is learning about growing their own produce and thoroughly enjoying it.
