A CASH donation has helped a horticultural project at the National Star College.

A £1,000 grant from the Finnis Scott Foundation has ensured the scheme can continue to flourish at the college, which caters for students with physical disabilities.

The money has enabled the college to create a range of items, including wooden sleepers for raised beds, gravel for walkways, timber and hurdles for fencing and storage.

The horticulture area acts as an outdoor classroom and a relaxation area.

Students work on a number of horticulture-related activities.

These include planting potatoes, creating herb gardens and growing flowers, marrows, beans, courgettes, tomatoes, kale and pumpkins.

Some produce is used in cooking sessions.
