A group of North Liverpool Academy students 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 life enriching projects.
It was great to get our students involved in this amazing community project. It has inspired us to start our own community gardening club, where we’ll aim to develop a gardening allotment on the school grounds this June.
