Thanks to Julie from Loirston Primary who sent us some photos of the pupils who took part in our seed potato project. The crop was harvested at the last week of term, and from 12 seed potatoes they got 100 decent sized tatties and a few small ones too.
The kids looked like they had fun digging around finding them!
What better way to spend a Friday than with the crew of BBC Landward and the pupils of Woodside Primary, filming a segment about our OSF school garden project for their new TV series.
Well done to the schoolchildren for showing presenter Anne and the team their gardening and cooking expertise 😊
Thanks to Teresa from our Climate Cafe Community for sending us a photo of her newly dug Cara potatoes. How are yours growing?
Bramble Brae primary school garden is looking good for the pupils coming back on Tuesday. Thanks to the local families that helped with this over the holidays.
It’s always a pleasure spending time at the Cummings Park Community Flat and we got a nice tour of their garden, admiring lots of stuff growing well there.
We gave away some of our allotment grown Charlottes, Red Dukes and Casablanca, as well as the last of our rhubarb to today’s Agency Day visitors.
Our Red Duke of York was lifted as a first early last month. We got over 2kg from the seed potatoes but did have a bit of potato scab on the ones from our containers as you can see on the second photo.
The ones from our allotment were much better, the third photo is a take from 2 seeds. We left the rest in the ground and cut the shaws off about three weeks later so will lift some this weekend and let you know if there is any difference in size and quantity or not.
We finally have a picture of our school garden project banner.
One Seed Forward and the University of Aberdeen are “Cultivating Education” in local school gardens!
King Edward took part in our seed potato project this year and Audrey sent us some photos of them harvesting their tatties.
They have decided to give them to Trinity Chruch, Banff who are going to make a tattie salad with them and share it out in the whole community in Banff at a fun day they have planned for this Saturday.
How great is that? Well done to all the pupils 😄👍
We have had a lot of fun with the pupils at Bramble Brae Primary School this year as part of our OSF School Garden Project.
Yesterday they harvested peas, beetroot, lettuce, onions, kale and a lot of potatoes. In total they got 224 Maris Bard and Red Duke of York from 17 seed potatoes, with a total weight of 10kg!
Everyone got to take some home and they demonstrated true community spirit by sharing these with other pupils and staff. Well done and big thanks to Miss Leckey and her class for designing and creating the garden and helping in the development of our school educational programme. And for all your hard work and ideas!
