Healthy harvest at Watling View School, St Albans

HARVEST has proved a time of rich pickings at a St Albans primary school where children have been tasting the produce they grew.

Hard work preparing the ground and planting a range of fruit and vegetables in the spring has paid off at Watling View School where the youngsters have been harvesting tomatoes, courgettes, onions, potatoes and beetroot.

In fact so successful have they been that they have been supplying the school with fresh produce well into the autumn.

Flo Stone co-ordinated and taught the youngsters their horticultural skills, Burston’s Garden Centre donated seeds and compost and Ayot Green Sawmill provided the wood to build compost bins.
