Stubbings Infant School

Sustainable Playground Project


Stubbings Infant School’s new vegetable beds.

Designed for use by the whole school, the lower beds by the younger children and not too wide so they can reach into the centre. They are also nice and deep so that vegetables can be planted closer together and conserves water, as the roots can grow deeper.


They were designed by the ATC and beautifully built by local builders Roger Ditchburn, Dan Strachan and Angus Mitchell. They look like they rise out of the cobbles and are built from reclaimed stone and the remaining lockgates that were left over from planters and benches in the main playground.



The Master Plan for the playground The school has raised some money for seeds and tools and teachers Rachel Kerby and Anne Harris are planning to start preparing for the season ahead with the children at the start of next term.
