Veggie mites: Tasting their own
Sunday 19 July 2009
For children across the country the school year is coming to an end, but students at the Kingsway Primary School in Goole, East Yorkshire, couldn't leave without harvesting the vegetables they've been cultivating as part of the The Independent on Sunday 'Let Children Grow' campaign.
Since being chosen as a beacon school for the campaign, which is run in association with the Royal Horticultural Society, pupils at Kingsway have been out in their new community garden, checking the progress of their crops, and they finally got to taste the fruits of their labour, last week (left). But they held off eating the lot, agreeing to sell some produce to fellow pupils' parents.
