Using our new tools

We had two visitors today at gardening club – and they came bearing gifts!

Our local Sainsburys in Camden runs a scheme where they will give away free gardening equipment to schools and we were the lucky recipients!

Two members of staff came to the club and had a tour before the children were able to pounce on their goody bag. Trowels, forks, spades, plant pots, rakes, brushes and watering cans were all enthusiastically pulled out and the children set to work with them in the garden.

We also received a lovely book called ‘Grow it, Cook it, Eat it and the children were keen to try out the recipes – especially Halloween Soup and Best Ever Carrot Cake. A great way for us to decide what to grow in the spring will be choosing which things we would like to cook and then growing the vegetables for the recipe.

A good day all in all!
