Gardening lesson

We decided to work with the children to plant a vegetable garden, to provide the veggies for the school lunches, which our new chef has taken to a new level. 

The Rhizome Urban Gardens team were eager to help us, and last week Jamie and Asha from Rhizome came to teach our first gardening lesson, which was a great success! 

Jamie introduced some key gardening tools and we learned about different types of soil, what worms do, and planted various kinds of lettuce. This week we'll continue with a focus on weeds and climbing plants, and also plant peas. 

Here's a video of Asha explaining to the class how micro-organisms in the soil help plants grow:
