from Half­way Pri­mary School are shwo­ing off the fruits of their labours in the school’s eco gar­den.

The chil­dren have grown, radish, run­ner beans, radish, cour­gettes, ‘gi­ant’ cab­bages, broc­coli, car­rots, onions and mint. They were planted in the af­ter-school eco club and have been wa­tered and looked af­ter by the chil­dren dur­ing the school days since.

Half­way’s eco school co-or­di­na­tor. Emma How­ells-Protheroe said: “We will pre­pare and cook the veg­eta­bles for the chil­dren to taste them.

“We feel it is very im­por­tant for the chil­dren to recog­nise the whole process of grow­ing veg­eta­bles and to be aware of the ‘farm to fork’ process and the re­al­i­sa­tion that veg­eta­bles are not made by shops. As a plat­inum eco school and healthy school, we ed­u­cate the chil­dren on the im­por­tance of a healthy life­style and the ben­e­fits if fresh and healthy foods.”
