Every year in Leicester, primary schools design a delicious menu and grow as many of the ingredients as they can to make it as part of the Grow Your Grub Competition. Then three Garden Inspectors come and look at the condition of the crop, the use of environmentally friendly growing methods, innovation and the presentation of the site. They also look at any work associated with the project and see how the garden has been used as an educational resource.
Our menu this year took on a very winning theme!
Please have a look at our blog posts all about getting ready for the Inspectors:
and about the actual Inspection Day itself:
Last year, Mayflower WON the competition, and we have our fingers crossed that we are going to do well this year as well!
Well done to all of the Gardening Club for all your hard work which has made the garden look so fabulous!
