CHILDREN, parents and staff at a Hampshire school have built their own greenhouse out of hundreds of recycled plastic bottles.

It is hoped that Osborne School, in Winchester, will be able to grow sufficient fruit and vegetables to serve in the school canteen.

The children were helped by employees from Osborne Property Services as part of the school’s initiative to help children learn about sustainability, planning and teamwork skills.

Neal Allison, community investment manager, said: “It’s wonderful to have delivered a project which has involved upcycling rubbish to provide a useful facility for the school and in which the pupils, staff and parents have participated so enthusiastically.”
