Our school garden at Southwold Primary School in Hackney had the honour of a visit from HRH Countess of Wessex, patron of the London Children’s Flower Society. The pupils talked about all of the gardening projects we do throughout the year and gave her a tour of the rooftop garden.
I gave HRH a copy of ‘Homegrown Tea’ and talked about growing tea at my schools. She was really interested to see the jumper made from flax grown at Southwold, my other schools and other community organisations across London with the help of Cordwainers community garden.
