CLAPHAM LEAF CLUB

Clapham Leaf Club is a project designed to enable pupils of the Clapham and Larkhall Collaborative primary schools (Allen Edwards, Clapham Manor, Heathbrook, Larkhall Primary, Macaulay CE) to learn all aspects of growing their own food from preparing the soil using organic matter, to sowing seeds and culturing their crops which will be harvested and sold as fruit and vegetables or used in a cuisine and cooked and sold at the Market every year in July.

Flowers cut from the meadow garden at Heathbrook Primary plus their own home grown Mint for Mint Teas and Lavender Bags for ballerinas! Clapham Manor Primary filled us with a treat of recipes and plenty of fresh produce from their new food growing garden, and Macaulay CE Primary filled their stall with so many tomato plants and lettuces – a perfect summer mix! 

Thanks to all the participating schools: Clapham Manor, Heathbrook and Macaulay CofE Primaries.. Thanks also to everyone who came by and supported our youngsters efforts.. It was a terrific turnout!
