Rusheen National School have best Mixed Garden

 Rusheen N.S.  are very proud of their beautiful garden and a

ll classes do some gardening but 5th an 6th Class do most of it and are helped by teachers, SNA and parents.

The garden was established in 2010 and it is a mixed garden.  They grow vegetables and fruit.  They have  lovely features such as a stream and mature trees.  They have a lawn as well as a gravel area.  They have an outdoor classroom by the stream, which is great to use on warm days.  They have a composting area, an insect hotel and a log pile for the little creatures to hibernate during the winter.  They also have a pergola and arch that they are training thornless roses to climb.  They have famine pots and tyre pots, a fairy  village, butterfly mosaics, a water butt, a pink curved wall and butterflies that 5th & 6th created in crafts class made from old tinfoil plates which they decorated.
This year they have added a lovely mural of a wildflower garden.  All pupils did some painting under the guidance of Jesse, their S.N.A. This garden has something for everyone.
