The students from the ARB harvested their first crop of "school grown" produce this season. Two of the students picked some onions and garlic and were delighted to finally see the results of their hard work.
The students have regular gardening lessons and have planted a variety of fruit, vegetables and flowers. Some have been planted from seed, enabling the students to recognise and implement all factors necessary for successful growth.
The students had the opportunity to take onions home with them. They are eagerly awaiting the next harvest, where the students will be able to pick the crops and cook with them, allowing them to eat the produce within an hour of it being picked.
