Seabrook’s Eco Guardians are a council, made up of pupils, who investigate how our actions have an affect on the environment around us, and suggest ways we can improve this within the school.
ECO Guardians 2019-2020
To celebrate Harvest the ECO Guardians went apple picking at a local farm in Saltwood called Garden House Orchard. They picked enough apples for all the children to enjoy one each after our Harvest Festival service.

Garden House Orchard visit
The ECO Guardians invited Nigel from Garden House Orchard to come and talk to the school about his fruit farm. The children were excited to find out that Nigel has been a fruit farmer for 50 years and that his father before him used to run the farm.
The children had prepared many questions before hand as they were keen to find out what it is like to be a farmer, what jobs he does around the farm each day and what colour his tractor is!
Some of the comments from the children were:
'It's amazing that the farm produces over 150 tonnes of apples each year'
'It was fascinating to find out that the farm has been passed down through the family'
