Don't you love these painted, indoor garden beds!
image Roy, the specialist in the kitchen, cooked up a storm for the day, with his catering image Tools! How lucky they are to also have incorporated the programme with the horticulture course for the older students, allowing sharing of tools and some facilities.
With the construction of the outdoor beds coming on well, and the seedlings looking fabulous inside, its going to be all happening this spring, at St. James If you would like to be involved as a volunteer, contact the school for how you can help instil a love and understanding for what it means to grow food, cook it and share it.

Brilliant!!! Great to see the kids learning where food comes from. When i have to buy veggies the kids at the counter sometimes dont even knowing their names!!!
