Primary pupils grow their own veg
Children at Eleanor Palmer Primary School were delighted to find succulent tomatoes, runner beans and spring onions in their school vegetable patch.
GREEN-fingered children returned to a primary school in Kentish Town to find a crop of fresh vegetables waiting for them.
The seven and eight-year-olds at Eleanor Palmer Primary School were delighted to find succulent tomatoes, runner beans and spring onions in their school vegetable patch.
Parents dug the allotments in the Easter holidays and the Year 3 pupils have been in charge of watering and tending to them.
The headteacher Kate Frood said: “They’ve learnt masses about crops, weeds, bugs as well as cooking spring onions, tomatoes and runner beans.”
