Year two pupils from Woodbury Salterton Church of England Primary School have created their own African garden.

The Send a Cow charity visited the school to teach the children how Africans their age produce their own food through making a sustainable keyhole garden.

Once they had found out about the climate in Africa and why children produce their own food, the students were given the opportunity to build their own keyhole garden within the school grounds.

The pupils worked in teams to create a circular base to the garden, which was dug out and lined with old tiles and stones to create a wall. They then made a compost basket out of wire and willow, working in pairs to shovel and move soil across the field to where the African garden was being built.

The children will now be able to start using their garden to recycle their food waste and grow their own vegetables.
