A school in Wiltshire has received a £350 donation to help develop a diverse gardening project.

John of Gaunt School in Trowbridge picked up a Wessex Watermark Award and a cheque from the Conservation Foundation last month in honour of the project, which began two years ago, the Wiltshire Times reported.

According to the newspaper, the garden has grown in that time from just four flowerpots to become a varied space incorporating a vegetable patch and "mini-hothouse".

It was also revealed that the school is now planning to use the grant to create proper beds and borders for vegetables, herbs and plants while also developing an overgrown pond area into a wildlife garden.

"The garden has been a wonderful addition to the school community," commented Carol Clark, the school's special educational needs co-ordinator.

"Growing plants and vegetables has been educational and therapeutic for many of our students, and will help encourage them to adopt a healthy lifestyle in the future."
