GOVERNMENT HOUSE SCHOOL GARDENS PROGRAM

Katazha Whitfield - Beet

The Government House School Gardens Programme was the brainchild of Governor of Bermuda George Fergusson's wife Margaret in 2012. Thanks to the generosity of the current governor John Rankin the programme continues following their departure from the island at the end of their term in 2016, beginning its 6th year in mid-October.  Nine Garden Club mentors have committed to helping the students and teachers from Northlands, West Pembroke and Victor Scott Primary Schools on Wed, Thurs and Fri. afternoons. The program is now affiliated with the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the Garden Club was asked to contribute a short feature article about the program to the RHS monthly publication “The Garden”.

Well done girls and boys of West Pembroke Primary School, Victor Scott School and Northlands School, pictured above with mentors Peter Holmes and Jonathan Clipper
