Harvest time for Devizes nursery
9:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
Youngsters at Heathcote House Nursery School in Devizes have seen their efforts in the garden pay off when they harvested fruit and vegetables.
The nursery started a gardening club last September for the pre-school children (aged three and four) and they got involved with every aspect of growing vegetables, from making paper cases to grow seedlings in to re-potting and watering.
The youngsters have been collecting raspberries, gooseberries and blackcurrants from the fruit bushes and last week harvested carrots and potatoes from their vegetable patch.
Kelly Sunderland, deputy principal, said: “The children have thoroughly enjoyed looking after their vegetables and have been excited all week about harvesting them. We are currently having a greenhouse built to allow us to extend our project further.”
