School Food Project In Bridport Continues To Grow

St Marys Garden

9:12am 7th November 2014

It's the end of National School Meals week and one Bridport primary school are celebrating the food they've grown themselves.

St Mary's in Skilling Road are having their gardens redeveloped to teach the 174 students about producing their own fresh local food.

The HOME in Bridport organisation are helping the project and say that the uptake of school dinners has increased enormously this Autumn term since using food from the garden.

Funds for the project have come from various sources, including £1,000 from Magna Housing Association's community initiative fund (CIF).

A number of events are planned for the gardens such as a community lunch for 80, the building of a cobb oven and children's activities such as scarecrow making and an introduction to the Forest Schools.
