'One Million Green Fingers'

It was great to hear about Yorkshire Water's latest project which will help create sustainable and healthy gardens in schools across Yorkshire...

In the first year the following schools in Leeds will be involved:
Strawberry Fields Primary School
Kippax Greenfield Primary School
Fountain Primary School
Rothwell St Mary's RC Primary School
Middleton Primary School
Harewood CE Primary School
St Theresa's RC Primary School
Bramhope Primary School
Westgate Primary School
Hunslet Moor Primary School
Whitecote Primary School
Cobden Primary School
Pudsey Greenside Primary School
Pudsey Tyersal Primary School
Horsforth St Mary's RC Primary School
Yeadon Westfield Junior School
Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School

I hope that more schools will take up this fantastic opportunity to create something special in their school grounds either an allotment, a sensory garden, a woodland corner to help children learn about their environment, sustainability, energy conservation, locally sourced and healthy food, water conservation and recycling.

CONGRATULATIONS to Yorkshire Water who are building on the success of their water cooler scheme with another real winner! If you want to know more you can visit Yorkshire Water's website at
