Joshua can dig it
10:00am Friday 30th March 2012 in Wantage
YOUNGSTER Joshua Barber put all his weight into digging in his school garden.
The Stanford in the Vale Primary School pupil is one of 35 children in the after-school gardening club.
And on Wednesday they planted seeds and saplings donated by the village Co-operative store as part of its eco week.
Joshua, six, said he liked digging, planting and watching plants grow. He added: “I love gardening.”
Youngsters Charlie Palmer, nine, and Ollie Palmer, five, are also club members.
Their mum Tracy Palmer, 34, said: “They love being outdoors and they love getting dirty.”
Year one teaching assistant Sue Finney has been running the garden club for eight years.
She added: “The children absolutely love gardening.
“It shows them the whole life cycle.”
