Cook it Grow it


We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the Helen Hamlyn Trust

Open Futures Programme.


With the support of staff from RHS Harlow Carr, the 'Cook it, Grow it' project enabled

the school to build vegetable beds where we grow and harvest our own crops. 

The produce is then used in cooking lessons and  the school canteen so the children

get to taste what they have grown.


The funding and outside support has now finished but the children are continuing with

the project and we have added a water butt and several compost bins to our resources.

Our latest development is the creation of an orchard in the school grounds where we

are growing apple trees and strawberry plants.
