One of our local schools had a special visitor to officially open their school garden today, after receiving a cheque, to set up its own kitchen garden. The project will help educate pupils about the origins of fresh food and the benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables. The donation from Caterlink’s charitable Foundation will go towards the construction of raised garden beds at the school. The School will be able to grow an array of fruit and vegetables and involve many more children, their parents and members of the local community in food related projects and learning. The kitchen garden will enhance the focus on fresh food already in place at the school through the work of Caterlink. Neil Fuller, Managing Director of Caterlink, said: “We are delighted to support the school through our Foundation’s Kitchen Garden project. By working closely with schools, we hope to have a positive impact in reinforcing the importance of fresh food and provenance to local children. This donation from WSH Foundation will go a long way to ensuring we can achieve this.”

Sam Choo our onsite chef manager has used old pots, pans, bins, mayonnaise tubs and branches from a cut down tree to grow a herb and vegetable garden outside the kitchen. It has been blessed by the local priest and visited by the pupils at Our Ladys. All the plants have been grown from cuttings or seed with no pesticides used. Sam uses the herbs to garnish and flavour his food and is extremely proud of his achievements.
