The raised beds were completed at the end of May 2009 and we have been steadily growing vegetables in them ever since. The potatoes are now ready to be harvested and the red cabbages are growing particularly well.

It is the pupils who built the raised beds and planted the vegetables and they have done a great job. As a reward for their hard work, we used some of the strawberries grown at Central to have a strawberry party for all pupils who helped at the end of last year.

Over the next year, we hope to be able to extend this area and provide even more food for our canteen to be able to use.
