At Mucky Pups we encourage children to be sustainable. We make our own compost, have our own wormery, source locally and recycle wherever possible. The children grow fruit, salad and vegetables which they enjoy eating, and are encouraged to grow flowers to attract wildlife into their gardens. They get dirty and love it, and learn to marvel at the miracle that is a tiny seed becoming something delicious to eat or a beautiful flower.
Mucky Pups get involved in many rewarding activities including Nunney Flower Show, the Nunney Open Gardens event and the annual school Summer Fair each July. Mucky Pups is generously supported by local organisations including Longleat Forestry, Viridor, Western Skip Hire, Hastoe Housing Association and Homebase. The keyhole garden was rebuilt in February 2015 using stone from the old playground wall. Spring bulbs were planted around the school.
Volunteers are always required and welcome. Please call the school office if you are interested 01373 836429.
