Fruit and Veg at Local School

On the 5th of March Transition Ely, St. Mary’s Junior School ‘Eco Warriors’, staff and parents planted 8 apricot trees at the school as part of a plan to grow fruit and vegetables with the children at the school. Lezley Blackburn of the Transition Ely Food Group raised funds from the Green Grants scheme to buy the trees and tools for the project. About twenty children came along and really enthusiastically helped plant the trees, along with parents, teachers and ground staff from St Mary’s. It was a delight.

The Food Group is getting going on veg growing, looking forward to fresh, delicious produce. If you know of an unused patch suitable for a bit of community cultivation which needs growers let us know. There is a Community Garden project planned in Littleport – contact Mary Ann on swanson.maryann@gmail.com to get involved. Don’t forget the Introduction to Permaculture Design course 7/8/9th May at Fen End Organic Farm in Cottenham. www.cambridgesustainability.co.uk  for details.
