Last week we wrote pledges promising to do something for the environment.
My pledge was to always bring my own cup instead of getting a takeway cup when I get a coffee. It’s really important because otherwise this waste goes to landfill. And coffee cups don’t break down! I want to reduce my impact on the environment.
What was your pledge and why is it important for our planet?

This week you will be planting your own vegetables. Part of being sustainable means being able to grow your own food! We are going to be planting spinach or lettuce, your choice! Read the instructions below so you know what to do.
- Fill the pot with seed raising mix.
- Water the soil with a fine mist (use spray bottle).
- Sow the seed (plant it!) in pot and firm down.
- Put in greenhouse with vents closed. Put in a light position but not in direct sun.
- As soon as seedlings begin to emerge, open the vents on the lid to allow ventilation.
- Keep soil moist.
- Once plants are large enough to handle, they should be transplanted in to the garden. Harden off by removing the lid and moving to a sunny position a few days before planting outside.
