Many hands make light work of fine weeding in the vegetable plot - carrots, beetroot, cabbage, onions - to look forward to after the summer break. Photo taken by Maddie P1/2/3 Mulbuie PS
Mulbuie's compost bins have had a make-over thanks to their janitor. The compost will go on the empty beds over the winter.

So lots to look forward to this autumn and winter, which will help pupils at Mulbuie towards the Growing Hub Award. If your school would like to try this easy-to-do Award over a growing year, please ask RoWAN for more details.

Tarradale Primary School's tunnel
Muirtown Primary School - before
Thanks to Highland Polytunnels and the guys that did a fantastic job putting the tunnels up - both were out up in one day! Staff and pupils at Tarradale and Muirtown are very excited about the opportunities these covered spaces will provide. There will be a lot going on next term. Watch this space ...
Another tunnel is going to St Clements School in Dingwall in the new term.

The pictures say it all - in just over an hour this afternoon the P6 class cooked a rhubarb crumble using rhubarb from their garden, installed a new Ridan food composter and sowed 5 trays of assorted wild flowers. Amazing what they can achieve on a wet Friday. We'll keep you posted on how the Ridan and cornflowers do.

There are lots of young people - in and out of school - doing great things to learn more about and tackle climate change. Have a look at this video from Young Scot - and add your thoughts to the debate, either here or with Young Scot. RoWAN is looking at being able to award YOUNG SCOT REWARDS for actions that reduce your carbon footprint through your involvement in "R U Up 4 It?". Look forward to hearing your ideas for activities we can help you with.

Tarradale Primary School pupils find where their new polytunnel has been hiding! But not for much longer - they hope to get it put up and ready for action by the end of April. If you can help in anyway to make the most of this fabulous new growing space please get in touch with RoWAN or Tarradale Primary School. RoWAN is providing polytunnels to Muirtown and Dochgarroch Primary Schools as well and we hope that lots of members of their local communities will benefit from them. If you have a polytunnel at your school we'd love to hear what has worked well for you - as well as the things to avoid!
