We spoke to Tom Moggach, author of the The Urban Kitchen Gardener and teacher, about the growing project that he helps run at Rhyl Primary School.

It was good to see a primary school taking such a committed approach to teaching young kids. Many school have projects around gardening but they can lean towards either gardening clubs for the super-interested kids or token one offs, that don’t really fit into the kids real experience.

In London this seems particularly important because the range of backgrounds the children come from means a simple set of “English” vegetables simply isn’t going to relate to their home lives, and that extra variety can be something to enthuse the others too.
