Prep School Eco Club are growing potatoes

Published Wednesday 19th of May 2021 09:49:04 AM

The weather didn't stop the Prep Eco Club this week - they were out in force to help Mr Hickson plant some maincrop potatoes.

The children learned about the concept of 'no-dig' gardening, though we did cheat a little bit by making a small hole with a dibber!

We kissed the potatoes for good luck and tucked them in.

Hopefully, we will be harvesting and tasting some of the Cara, Setanta and Stemster varieties soon.
