Cregmore National School




A Cregmore National school parent entered a competition in Horkan’s Garden Centre, Claregalway early in 2019 and won a Vege-Pod for the school. This was so successful that the school purchased a second one later in 2019.

With the help of children throughout the school, we planted our summer plants, fruit and herbs. We planted carrots, lettuces strawberries herbs and edible flowers.

The children really enjoyed nurturing and watch the plants grow and helped to pick them when they were ready to eat. Each class and staff member got a sample of our finished products which everyone really enjoyed.

In September 2019 the children again helped to plant our winter plants. We planted spinach, onions, garlic, lettuce herbs and edible flowers.

The Vege-Pod is a great asset to all of our pupils including those with Special Educational Needs who love working with nature while planting and tending to the Vege-Pod.
