School Food Matters Project

This year The Link Secondary School took part for the first time in a School Food Matters Project. The project was called Know Your Onions.

HARVEST1

As part of the project several students initially visited Sutton community farm to learn how to grow vegetables from seed. In April a gardener from the charity came to the school to help us establish our new allotment and plant potatoes, beetroot and other vegetables.

Our allotment grew quickly so that in June when Ruth Quinlan a chef from SFM came to visit and run a masterclass for  a group of students we were able to use home grown vegetables to make a variety of dishes.

The rest of our crop was harvested last week and taken to a SFM market in Croydon with other local schools to sell to the public. The Mayor and Mayoress of Croydon visited our stall, as did the Mayor of Sutton who spent a long time at our stall chatting to our students and promising to come and visit our school .

We very much look forward to taking part in the project next year and hope it will be another great success.

 

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent
