Budding Gardeners Make an Impression

Monks Cross Shopping, in partnership with Askham Bryan College and the Butterfly Conservation Trust, has launched a gardening initiative with six local primary schools to design planting beds at the shopping park. 

Monks Cross Shopping invited Haxby Road Academy, Stockton on Forest Primary School, Huntington Primary School, Hempland Primary School, New Earswick Primary School and Yearsley Grove Primary School to submit a design for their planting bed.   

The six participating schools have all submitted their designs and Monks Cross Shopping and Askham Bryan College are working together to source the most appropriate plans to translate the school pupils’ designs into the planting areas.  The participating schools will be invited to the shopping centre for a “planting day” to help transform the planted beds along the walk way of the shopping centre into colourful areas for customers to enjoy.
