OAKMERE Primary School, Potters Bar, launched its first Grow Global Gardening Club project with a celebration event. The after-school club is being delivered by Groundwork Hertfordshire, and funded by the National Lottery Well Being in the East Programme.
At the launch, the children planted sunflower seeds into their new gardening beds and took part in other fun activities such as tasting unusual fruit and vegetables and playing environmental games. Over the next six months, as well as gardening activities pupils at the club will also be learning about fair trade, food miles, healthy eating, composting, wormeries and will cook and eat the fruit and vegetables they have grown.
Julie Lilly, headteacher, said By growing fruit and vegetables, the children will learn the importance of healthy eating and living.
