Students have been working on the expansion of another four vegetable beds to expand our ability to grow more food. We have also picked our first set of Little Gem lettuce and radish! As the peak of summer is ahead of us, we are certainly looking forward to harvesting more produce, but for now we are all praying for some rain to give the plants a burst of growth!
Several students have helped fill the new raised beds with topsoil in the polytunnel and fill the base of the tunnel with woodchip. They have worked extremely hard moving two tonnes of topsoil and woodchip and are looking forward to the fruits of their labour in the months to come!
