The Playhouse children pull their own parsnips

Date: 22 May 2018

Children at The Playhouse Day Nursery in Swindon recently pulled their own parsnips, in an initiative part of the organisation’s Green Gardeners enhancement.

The children pulled the parsnips from the gardening area, which they then washed before the nursery chef cooked them. The children were then able to taste the parsnips during lunch.

“This was a lovely activity for the children, as they could learn about the transition of vegetables growing in the garden to eating them from their dinner plates,” said Nursery Manager Claire Hatherall.

Bright Horizons Green Gardeners enhancement aims to provide children with opportunities to interact with the natural world around them.
