Commonwealth Games Meal

by Jennifer Muir, Mayfield Primary School, North Ayrshire

This time last year, Mayfield Primary School were preparing the planters in their poly-tunnel to plant crops for the North Ayrshire Commonwealth Games Meal. The meal was hosted in July 2014 to celebrate the Queen's Baton passing through North Ayrshire.

As Mayfield is a sustainable school we were asked to provide the vegetables for this event. Each class was allocted specific crops to grow. The children worked in the poly-tunnel to prepare the beds and then plants seeds.

It was a very successful crop and in July 2014 we harvested lots of potatoes, beetroot, peas, carrots, leeks, lettuce, spring onions, courgettes, onions and tomatoes.
