Glusburn Primary pupils grow food for school meals
9:40am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Pensioners in Glusburn will this week be eating food grown by children at the village primary school.
They will tuck into fruit picked by the pupils from the school garden and hedge-rows around the grounds.
Produce from the school’s harvest festival is donated each year to elderly residents of Sunnybank Villas and Townend Close. This year, the harvest included homegrown blackcurrants, gooseberries, raspberries, elderberries and rosehips.
Parent-helper Sarah Wicks was among adults who helped members of the school’s gardening club forage in the grounds.
She said: “Children throughout the whole school also bring in tins and packets, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.”
The harvest festival coincided with a Macmillan coffee morning attended by parents, which raised £472 for the cancer care charity.
