Garden to Table

Room 5 and our buddy class Room 7 got to experience the benefits to growing your own food.

Our lettuces were looking luscious and ready to eat so we all bought our marmite sandwiches to school and slapped on a bit of high quality produce. I think by all the smiles you can see that the Lettuce was a winner on the day.

Did you like our lettuce? Describe what the lettuce tasted like in the comment section...
