Turf

Sport is an essential activity for youngsters; one aspect of which could be turned to good use by introducing a study of the turf that is such a vital alternative to the pleasures derived from creating mud. The craft of the ‘green keeper’ is very specialised and completely in opposition to those wishing to create natural vegetation.

However, this should not be a problem if everyone appreciates the other’s point of view. The official groundsman can be brought on board by his involvement in explaining his work to the pupils and his assistance in identifying the tough turf species of grass that are important for playing football and rugby.
