Show What You Grow 2017 - celebration of school gardening

A blooming good time was had by all when primary schools from across West Lancs gathered to celebrate their school gardening achievements. 70 children from 8 West Lancs schools came to this year’s Show What You Grow festival of school gardening held at West Lancs College on July 12th. The children brought school grown produce, homemade scarecrows and magnificent displays of drawings, paintings and photos of their gardening work to the event.

The event was organised by the Community Food Growing Project of West Lancs CVS (as part of the Active West Lancs programme) in conjunction with West Lancs Allotment Federation and West Lancashire College, and was funded by Upholland Tawd Vale Lions.
