Phase Three is now complete with the Learning Centre being delivered on 23rd January 2012.


The gardens, raised beds and poly tunnels have been allocated between;

  • Three Worksop schools from the 'Food for Life' program - Norbridge Academy, St. Johns and Prospect Hill Junior Schools
  • NORSASCA of Raines Avenue, Worksop
A bed and poly tunnel allocation plan have been agreed and issued

 Works completed in this phase included;

  • delivery of gazebos
  • delivery of tables and chairs
  • delivery of garden tools
  • fitting of new door to tool store and secure padlock

Some minor works are required to complete the Learning Centre, such as fitting the sink and base units (courtesy of Howdens Joinery of Worksop) and a bit of paint here and there...
