Wilmington Academy fruit and vegetables star in school Horticulture Show

On July 15, Wilmington Academy students hosted a horticulture business trade show, involving local garden centres and other businesses, horticultural colleges, the school beekeeping club as well as teachers and students from other schools.

Cucina chef Mark Cartwright put on a cooking demo with food from the garden…

“We took the produce out of the garden and did a big, live cook. We stir-fried, we made fresh bread with these vegetables in them. We also made soup and we also made desserts with them. We wanted to say – this is what the kids have grown, this is what we are doing with it and this is how we can work with it.”

Next academic year, Wilmington Academy Horticulture Department will be starting a new club for Years 7 and 8 called Fork 2 Fork. This is aimed at encouraging lower school students to develop their interest in the Land Based and Environmental Sector, and helping them to be more informed when it comes to choosing their options for Year 9.
