Aberdeen schoolchildren have been building gardens in cardboard boxes while learning about sustainability.
The gardening workshop, held on 30 May as part of the Sustainable Development Goals Conference, offered the chance for pupils and teachers from all over Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to experience creating their own small gardens. The project was led by One Seed Forward – a community growing initiative that encourages schools, community groups and individuals to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
Plants and seedlings used as part of the miniature garden project included peas, beetroot, beans, spinach, herbs, lettuce, kale, carrots, onions, artichokes, herbs, marigolds, bellies, strawberries, tomatoes, and shallots.
The miniature gardens can now be visited in the community area at Duthie Park in Aberdeen.
