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.”
