Successful Family Holiday Session on Farm

August 5, 2019 at 9:33 pm

On Monday 5th August we had a successful couple of hours with a group of families watering, weeding, planting and harvesting. Everyone got ‘stuck in’ and we had a bountiful harvest (despite forgetting to cut the kale). At the end we sat around and discussed each vegetable and families helped themselves to big bag fulls of produce. We harvested broad beans, runner beans, French beans (so many!), beetroot, plums, potatoes, courgettes, carrots and peppers.

Thank you to everyone for their great efforts: a real help during the holidays. We will have another session at the end of August to get ready for the new term. The tomatoes should be ready by then…

A summer of hard work and fun

August 5, 2019 at 9:25 pm

Every day Ms Howells is delighted by the hard work shown by the children on the farm. We have had another successful summer term despite some indifferent weather at times. Everything seems a few weeks behind last year when we had that long, hot summer. We have already had some lovely harvests including plenty of strawberries – the children’s favourites!
