Let's get planting

Children from Year 4 helped prepare planters, sow seeds and put in seedlings as part of the Soak It Up initiative from by Yorkshire Water and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

We will slow down the flow of rainwater into our sewers using plants and soil. Plants don't just hold water back, they even reduce the total amount going into the drainage system. They use some of the water and pass some back into the atmosphere.

We are really pleased to have received this help from Yorkshire Water and YWT who have provided the planters, seeds and seedlings free of charge.
