Thank you both so much for your replies.
I am looking forward to really getting stuck in in September. Had a trial run over the last two terms and purchased a few hand trowels and forks myself, as well as pots, compost, seeds etc. Wztching the children's faces as I handed them a tomato plant seedling to take home and look after at the end of last week's session was absolutely priceless.
Unfortunately, the school is in an area where vandalism is rife. This means that I have to think of ways in which I can make the garden as portable as possible. Large containers seem to be the way forward at the moment as does a lockable, heavy duty storage container, but as you know all these things cost a lot of money. I am also hoping to plant a wildflower garden which will, hopefully, attract bees and butterflies and not vandals!
