First Incredible Edible Session14-03-2017 | 13:49:52 | No Comments

Hi everyone,

The Eco-Committee had their first Incredible Edible Session today, which is a new scheme being run by the council to help schools grow fruit and vegetables for their community.  We will be growing our vegetables from seed. 

Tracey from Wigan and Leigh Homes came in to work with us and kindly brought us compost and seeds along with all the equipment we needed.  Thank you Tracey.

As you can see from the photos below, we were very busy.   We had to sieve our compost first to get the lumps out, then put it into seeds trays with our seeds.  We planted cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, watercress, sprouts, broad beans, tomato, coriander, basil and parsley seeds along with  seed potatoes in a special potato growing bag. 

We will be nurturing our seeds to grow into plants over the next few weeks by giving them warm water and putting them in a sunny position, indoors.
