Sacred Heart Catholic School in the Herb Garden, 7 March 2014

For their A-level Art course, the students have been given the following brief: 

GARDEN SEEDS - a company requires graphics to promote its range of flower and vegetable seeds. You might like to consider approaches such as illustration, packaging design or promotional graphics. Refer to appropriate work by others and produce a personal response.

Luckily, Diane and Michael are their teachers, and to help them with their research they brought the students along to the garden to learn about community gardening, to get some experience of hands-on work, and to make some sketches. Visit the Gallery for more images.

McMillan Herb Garden on the radio

Leanne Bower from Resonance FM writes "The McMillan Educational Herb Garden (to use its official title) is an oasis of calm in the ever increasing urban sprawl of Deptford, SE8. It is run by volunteers and provides workshops and horticultural education to local school children and adults alike. In the summer months, it is also a venue for acoustic performances and poetry. In this programme, Dave Suich interviews some of the organisers and volunteers in the garden and plays some of the recordings from the live events that have taken place there. Production by Stephen Elwell for Shopping Trolley Promotions and Leanne Bower for Resonance FM".

The show is due to be broadcast on Monday 3rd March at 20:00. It will be repeated on Tuesday 4th March at 09:00. Listeners in London can tune in on 104.4FM, or online anywhere on
