Kingsmead Vegetable Garden

In March 2011, we began an exciting project to turn a patch of land behind into a vegetable garden. Led by Mr Sohoye a small group of volunteers from Year 7-9 have dug some ground, and planted potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic and tomatoes. It is early days for the garden, but they are all growing nicely, and there are plans to plant more, and increase the size of the plot.

We see this as a great opportunity to educate students in where food comes from, and for them to get some first hand experience of growing good, organic food. We hope to use the garden to involve food technology as the project expands, and use the expertise of the MGT students to build us a composter to help provide nutrients for the soil, and to use all the plant waste generated around the school.
