collecting our prize from the Mayor

As the school year comes to an end, our last session was all about finishing off. We brought our tomatoes out of the greenhouse to try and survive the summer outside. Very healthy looking pepper plants were given to the children to take home and onions and potatoes were shared out amongst everyone too.

The beds are full of pumpkins, runner beans, carrots and cauliflower – all having to cope  with 4 weeks outside so fingers crossed that there is a bit of rain.

Then, a lovely end to the club. On Monday we were invited to Camden Town Hall for the annual Camden in Bloom competition as we had won a prize. We didn’t know what it was or in what category so I sat with 3 gardening club members, quite nervously to see. We were delighted to win ‘Best Variety and Quality in Food Growing’ and we were presented with a trophy and certificate from the mayor of Camden. A great way to finish.

However, the final word must be for Anne – her son leaves school this year and so her involvement comes to an end. As one of the original three – I just want to thank her here for her hard work and dedication to the club. Without her, we certainly wouldn’t be doing what we are doing now.

See you next year!
