Church Crookham nursery children harvest potatoes
Date: 24 Sep 2019
Children at Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool have recently developed a desire to be more eco-friendly and save the planet.
Each day the children help to care for the plants by watering them and reminding their friends how to keep them safe. As a result, they were able to harvest their nursery-grown potatoes.
“The excitement and thrill was felt throughout the nursery and this followed the children home. The children helped to pull the potatoes from the ground, wash them and delivered them to chef Mark,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Shanice Hall. “Chef Mark used the potatoes to make a delicious potato salad and the children were ecstatic to know they had grown the potatoes themselves.”
