Children ‘grow their own’ in school vegetable garden
25 May 2022
Children at a school in Barton Seagrave are learning how to ‘grow their own’ thanks, in part, to Persimmon Midlands.
The regional team, which is working on the nearby Cranford Chase new homes development, has supported Hayfield Cross Church of England School to create its own vegetable patch.
Dawn Fraser, school business manager said: “The project will enable students to gain a greater understanding of where food comes from, as well as promoting healthy nutritional choices.
“The children are excited about planting their own favourite vegetables and herbs, so we are very grateful to Persimmon for their help to bring our ideas to fruition.”
Claire Dearsley, sales director for Persimmon Midlands, added: “We are always keen to get involved in community projects in the areas where we are building, and thought that this school vegetable garden was a brilliant idea for engaging the children with nature and nutrition.
“We hope they thoroughly enjoy the experience of growing their own food from plot to plate!”
Cranford Chase is a selection of practical, modern homes designed to suit local buyers.
Persimmon Midlands operates new home developments throughout Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire.
