Vegetable Collection

Growing For Foodbank

Last academic year a decision was made to extend our already successful garden, more than doubling the green space. This extension has allowed us to grow far more fruit and vegetables this year than ever before.

At the start of this academic year, we decided to use this space to help our local community by growing a large variety of crops to donate to Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank.
The vegetables and fruit will be used in their Eat Well Spend Less courses aimed at teaching families cooking skills and learning to budget well.

In the spring, we spent a little time researching the needs of the Foodbank before buying the seeds, germinating them and growing them on. Students have lovingly cared for them during tutor time, watering them and feeding them.

The first collection took place at the end of June, where Foodbank staff visited the Academy to pick fresh garlic, radishes and onions.

The collections will continue to take place throughout the summer as different vegetables and fruits come into season. Student volunteers will continue to tend the garden throughout the summer holiday.

Sian Gates, Assistant Manager at the Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank, said , “We cannot provide these vital services to the local community without your support. Thank you once again. Would you please extend our thanks to your colleagues, parents and pupils.”
