Root Zero Community

Cover crops.

Maniffesto Root Zero, yn Cymraeg

We must educate our children to prepare them to be able to live more sustainable lives.

Our farmers have set aside parcels of land that can be used as an outdoor learning resource for our local schools.

The ROOT ZERO COMMUNITY is creating a generation who genuinely cares about our environment.

Education Projects

Johnson primary school

Johnston Primary School, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire

ROOT ZERO farmer Morgan Scale and ROOT ZERO agronomy assistant Jack Davies delivering cover crops and barn owl boxes to Year 4 children at Johnston Primary School.

Some of the projects that we will be helping with in the future:

  • Soil testing
  • Farmer visiting/talks
  • Helping to develop their field - planting wildflowers
  • Developing pupils understanding of local businesses
  • Barn Owl boxes
  • Root Zero veg patch
  • Solitary bee “houses”. Might be worth looking into.
  • Hedgerow planting
  • Log piles for insects.
  • Hedgehog house

St. Mark’s School, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire

We’ve supported St. Mark's school by providing a Polytunnel for growing seasonal vegetables, in their Community Garden. The schools' aim is to get all children to learn the skills for planting, growing, harvesting and sustaining these skills for life.

Our support and advice will help St. Mark's achieve their goals of enabling the pupils to become cultivators and responsible citizens as they grow up.

We look forward to reporting on their ROOT ZERO growing journey!

There's lots more to come.... watch this space!!
