On September 16th Charles Dowding also visited Newington Green to talk to Year 4 pupils about growing vegetables and fruit.
When tasting Charles's leaves they said:
"This is delicious!" (lettuce)
"This is a bit spicy" (wild rocket) - Tillie
Even the teacher learned something new, asking "What is that frilly green leaf?". Charles replied "mustard", to which the teacher responded "I like that, I've never tried it before".
When Charles asked "Does anyone know what a polytunnel is?", the answer from a Year 4 pupil was clear: "It's like a greenhouse but it's a tunnel".
