Widdifield Garden Project
We believe we can use our gardens to grow food for local people who do not get nearly enough fresh produce in their diets.
We have transformed a weedy, sandy, unwelcoming space into a beautiful garden that is now hosting hundreds of students each week during lunch hours, spares, and after school. We are growing a variety of vegetables, including tomatos, beans, peas, onions, cucumbers, peppers, kale, lettuce, radishes, and herbs. This food is brought to our local food bank during the summer, then in the fall, we use it in our own hospitality program to teach kids about healthy eating. Our school rocks!
