Mygrove

Create your own Mygrove!


Introduction to Mygrove by The Prince of Wales

Welcome to Mygrove, a site which has been specially designed for you to share in the fun of growing your own plants and vegetables.

As a keen gardener and farmer myself, it is wonderful to see the seasons producing different flowers and fruits from the golden daffodils of early Spring to the ripe red apples of Autumn.

Through your school, we’d like you to join our Mygrove challenge keeping an up-to-date- online blog about your own growing experiences. Whether you are creating a herb garden, tending a vegetable patch, building a bird box or simply growing flowers in a window box, we would like to hear from you.

At the same time as telling us about your own experiences, you can also read about what other schools are growing, as well as following what we are up to in my own garden at Highgrove. You never know, you might pick up some ideas!

I often think that gardening is a bit like painting. No matter how big or small the piece of paper or canvas you start with, it is what you create which matters!

Just like you and your school will be updating your own blogs and letting us know how you are getting on with your own Mygrove, we will be updating the Mygrove blog, too!

The blog on the right-hand side will keep you updated with lots of tips and hints for getting the best out of your Mygrove space.

Feel free to take a look at the blogs from other schools as well.

We hope you enjoy starting your own Mygrove and can’t wait to see what you start doing.

Good Luck!

The Mygrove team

The extension for the potatoes next to our very own camera obscura.

At Wicor Primary we have now been growing and selling vegetables for 7 years on our allotments.  Over that time, the allotment has grown and this year is no exception.  Another large patch has been dug and planted with potatoes, and excitingly the bed is next to a clay oven which is also being built by the Year 4 children.  This means that very soon our children will be able to harvest, prep, cook and eat all within a few paces.  The allotment itself is tended by all the children in the school, plus 7 volunteers from the local community. It's looking good at the moment!Over the past 2 years we have been selling our fruit and veg to parents in organic veg boxes.  Parents, or anyone from the local area, can order a veg box from the school website and children from Y6…
