Richmond Park Academy’s Horticultural Plans Need Your Vote!

Categories: East Sheen,East Sheen News,News

An enterprising RPA teacher has horticultural plans for the school’s pupils and is asking for your votes to help her vision become a reality.

Richmond Park Academy design and technology teacher Hayley Hunter has big plans to turn a school garden space into a school community allotment which will benefit students and the local community.


The space, behind the school staffroom, is already home to a chicken coop and RPA’s very own ex-battery hens that came to the school as a result of another initiative that Ms Hunter led. She now wants to go one step further and needs votes for her Aviva Community Fund Application to see the new garden take shape.


Ms Hunter is enthusiastic about the many opportunities that the new garden will offer and says,


“It has always worried me that young people do not know where their food comes from and their lack of basic skills to sustain themselves in a healthy way. I plan to involve local families in this project, provide learning outside of the classroom and even offer horticulture courses. This is on top of the fantastic produce that will continue to supply our food technology department and after school clubs.”


To be successful Ms Hunter needs your vote now! (You get 10!) So, please VOTE HERE.

When you click through you will be asked to register in the right hand column. Register and then cast your votes!

Thank you for taking a few minutes to do this.
