of the produce obtained from the school garden or local farms. Small groups
are utilized to encourage touching and tasting of vegetables and to practice

Firle community allotment

We are a community project set up to revitalise the village allotments and engage the community in growing vegetables, herbs, fruit, edible flowers and planting an orchard.
