The Fiacre’s Food Garden by Elina de Rosnay




In the Fiacre's Food Garden we harvest seeds and we have a greenhouse where we plant seeds and let them grow until they are big enough for the garden. When we harvest seeds we plant them straight away. In our garden we have lettuce, tomatoes, peas, beans, cauliflower, cucumber, strawberries, corn, carrots, basil, rocket, coriander, patatos, capsican, blueberries and passion friut.

The teachers that help us in the garden are Miss Belim and Miss Nashaty. They teach us how to plant different seeds including herbs and vegetables.Other things they teach us is how to mulch the garden and how different plants need different amounts of water.   

When the beautiful fruits, vegetables and herbs are ready to pick we use some of it in our kitchen lessons. So far in the kitchen we have made wheat tortias and garden sald with dressing. My favourite thing about kitchen is we always try new things and use fresh ingredients.
