Growing local

Our cut down version of a harvest festival.
The children harvested so much produce today that we are holding a stall for the school community after school tomorrow selling the freshly picked crop.
'No sprays' herbs and veg.

Nice going Dave and all, keep on doing what you're all doing so well!

WOW!!!!  Well done good Sir.

I am not surprised you sold out with such good quality Vegies on offer. Congrads!!!

The after school stall went great. We sold out of course -- bar a few veg dregs -- and the stall was staffed  by the seniors. 

It tweaked, as we were proceeding through this exercise, that such a big harvest once per term would go down great in the community and we could showcase it as a harvest festival.

What great produce, the kids must be so excited.  You are doing wonders with this school garden, wish mine was doing as well.  Great work Dave

Well Done Dave!! I would love my little school garden to get this productive

Today was supervised mayhem. My cart was overloaded with produce as we gutted what we could.

Last two weeks we had salad making ...and now, I guess, we move on into Spring planting.

Absolutely Beautifully, the kids must be very proud, and you of them. A job well done.
