Lettuce Celebrate the first bite!
The first taste of lettuce grown in The Glenleighden School’s Vegetable Patch was celebrated on the 5th of September! Andrea has watched the seed sprout & grow and has waited for this special day for some time. The day the lettuce became the key ingredient in her ham & salad sandwich was a momentous occasion. Andrea’s comments on the experience include
“Very fresh & delicious”
The sandwich was “All the more superb with the crunchy lettuce”
“It was lovely”
The Vegetable Patch was proudly sponsored by the Coles Junior Landcare Grant and was officially opened on Plant A Tree Day, Friday 26th July 2013.
We eagerly await the students taking their first taste of a healthy lunch choice that they have grown themselves.
