ONE YEAR ON AND IT'S TIME FOR HARVEST AT THE THE SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT !!
It is now a year since we had a visit from five little visitors from Gosberton Clough & Risegate Primary School who came for a guided tour and to collect some goodies donated for their for their Summer garden project!
Well the gardening project has been going really well and this week it has been time to harvest the crop before the school summer holidays, the children are really enjoying themselves watching the progress from planting right through to harvesting !
Carrie Hazlehurst Senior Teacher at the school commented lots of parents comment on how smart the children look and are pleased that their clothes are protected.our tates (being set in the picture) are now harvested and have been sold, with our children visiting a local veg stall to find out about prices and weights they should be sold in.We get the kids out every day (weather permitting) and we’ve had an old tractor donated by a parent which the children have also love using.
Zoe Spencer of Doubleday commented, ‘We are really pleased to see that our donations have gone to a good home and it is wonderful to see these young children being encouraged to learn about where their foodcomes from. Thank you to Clough and Risegate Primary School for helping to protect the future of the Food and Farming industry!
