MORE than a year after they carefully sowed the seeds – youngsters dug up their harvest of vegetables for a homeless charity.
The four and five-year-olds from Portsmouth Grammar Junior School proudly displayed homegrown beans, courgettes, tomatoes and peppers among other edible donations for this year’s Harvest Festival celebrations at St Thomas’ Cathedral in Old Portsmouth.
The large quantity of food was given to Central Point, a charity that supports homeless people in the heart of Portsmouth.
Judith Hardy, head of infants, who organised the service, said: ‘The children have greatly enjoyed working on this project and have learned so much throughout the process.
‘The growing and caring embodies the fantastic aspect of nurture within the school and the spirit of collaboration and working together to achieve a common goal.’
