BBC Gardeners Worlds Live – Meal in a Barrow Competition

For the Meal in a Barrow competition, students from Years 7, 8 and 9, along with some keen staff gardeners, came together to design a recipe, the ingredients of which could all be grown in a wheelbarrow. Thanks to the kind donations of plants from staff, students came up with the idea of Courgetti Spaghetti with a Tomato & Vegetable Sauce and got down to planting it. Students learnt about how to grow vegetables (tip: lots of water!) and took responsibility for deciding on how the wheelbarrow should look. The wheelbarrow was eventually displayed at Gardener’s World Live 2017 at Birmingham NEC. No word yet on how well we did but Dr Bailey’s Mum commented “It looks beautiful!” – praise enough surely?!
