We worked with Peel Park primary School to organise a Growing Competition for schools in BD3 and BD4. Five schools entered with a high standard of produce from their gardens. We took some children from Year 6 Gardening club with our entries. Our entries included garden collages made by Year 3 and a selection of produce from our school garden.
Whilst the judge was looking at the entries, we made bird feeders from pipe cleaners and breakfast cereal. All the schools won a certificate and ours was for 'Smallest Carrot'! We hope to run this again next year with even more schools!

We entered the West Yorkshire Organic Group Show again in September and won five certificates for our crops. These were kale - highly commended , chard - third prize , horseradish - third prize, Grenadier cooking apple - third prize, Katy apple - highly commended."..
Children in Years 5 and 6 attend gardening club in their lunch breaks. These show some of the food we have grown this year.
