We have our exhibitions in June… We are so very proud of the students achievements, and here are just a couple of pieces you’ll see in the show…
CSM Foundation Exhibition
We were pleased to visit the CSM exhibition to see the work of alumni.. Well done Isabella and Eve, impressive work.
Another roof garden update
As this is our last post before we go off on our Half term break and we haven’t got any new produce to harvest yet as most were newly planted last week.
here are some beautiful photographs of the roof garden as a whole.
Our Second Harvest!
We went up on the roof to check how our department offspring are getting along and had some quite surprising harvests since last weeks visit…
As you can see, we pulled some HUGE radish from the ground!
I think the size of them took us all by surprise considering the first lot that came out were the usual size that you would expect when you purchase them from the supermarket. I assume that the little heatwave we have had did them some good.
we only pulled up two carrots to see how they are progressing. They definitely need more time harvesting. We got one very small one and one long skinny spiralling shaped one. This just goes to show students how much process of elimination that supermarkets force farms to go thorough before fresh fruit and vegetables end up on shelves. I’m not confident that our spiral carrot would even make it into a ‘wonky veg’ bag.
Further planting on the roof by the D&T Department!
Some more of our seedlings that we started off a few weeks ago in the food room have grown large enough to be transplanted up onto the roof.
Here is Head of D&T Mrs Barden & Mrs Spieler getting their hands dirty with some more planting on the roof.
We have some more tomatoes & Aubergine.
Again, Keep watch for more of next weeks progess!
Our First Roof-garden Harvest
The students of gardening club have been excited to see the fruits of their labour. It will take a good while before we get to see the progression of the Carrots but the Radish and Tomato are growing in considerable amounts!
Stay tuned next week for another update!
