Bankers help out at Dalston school’s garden
Bankers got their hands dirty last Friday (May 11) when they helped out at a Dalston primary school’s garden.
UBS employees spent the day clearing out the organic garden at Shacklewell Primary School as part of a team building exercise.
They helped dig over the 60m� allotment beds and remove weeds ready for fruit and vegetables to be planted by pupils and parents on Saturday.
Year two teacher Ire Smith, responsible for environment and sustainability, said: “After the rain there was a lot of work to do. They made sure it’s all nice and ready to plant fruit and veg.”
Baby carrots, beans and beetroot are amongst vegetables to be grown in the plots and eventually used in school dinners.

“We have amazing outdoor learning space here at Shacklewell,” Mr Smith added. “It really impacts on pupils’ learning because at the moment all the baby plants are in pots and the children have been looking after them.”
