Planting Wildflowers

A group of students from North Liverpool Academy have made the short trip across the road to Everton Park to take part in a very special community project.

Together with Richard Scott, Senior Ecologist from the Landlife Trust, students planted wild flower seeds in the park as part of ‘A Tale of Two Cities: Grow Wild England Flagship Programme’.

The programme pairs cities across England to compete against others in a competition that was eventually won by Liverpool and Manchester.

Over the next two years, the programme will expand to include a number of events and activities within the community, providing the students at North Liverpool Academy the opportunity to take part in even more enriching and exciting projects.

Andrew Devey added, “It was great to get our students involved in this amazing Community project. These students will get to revisit the park and see the wild flowers develop. A big thank you goes to Richard from the Landlife Trust for involving our school. This has also inspired us to start our own Community Gardening Club which will be called North Liverpool Academy In Bloom. We aim to develop a gardening allotment on the school grounds starting in June.”

If you would like to get involved, please come along to our In Bloom Club every Tuesday from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, starting Tuesday 2nd June. Please meet outside the school reception at 3:30pm each Tuesday or every Thursday from 12:30pm to 2:30pm (meet at the BNENC). This club is open to anyone in the Community, young and old, beginners to seasoned horticulturists and we hope to have all generations of the community working together.
