Despite all our woes over the polytunnel, we have just run a super session with a Robert Shaw year 5 class, which really helped brighten our mood.
|Harvesting the mini sweetcorn
Ellis, Tracey and new Groundwork bod Craig helped the class to harvest produce and then we split into groups (Vampires, Spooks and Zombies!) to plant onions and garlic, paint totem poles and cook to make a pasta dish with a fresh sauce using the tomatoes, onions, garlic and herbs from the allotment. We were delighted about this as a Robert Shaw class helped us to plant the tomatoes when they visited in the Summer term, so it only seemed right that they would be the ones to do the harvesting and get to taste what they'd grown.
