This month, students from across the capital set up shop selling their school-grown fruit and veg at Borough Market for the Young Marketeers Summer Sale. In preparation for the big day, students received training on seed sowing from Blue Peter Gardener, Chris Collins. In addition, experts at Borough Market provided tips on becoming successful market traders. On sale day, the students raised an impressive total of £538 for Fareshare, which will provide 2,150 meals for vulnerable families.

We have also had a busy start to July, with students at East Street Market on the 9th as part of the ‘Healthy Zones’ programme. The Schools to Market sale day took place at Whole Foods Stores on the 10th, and secondary schools on the Know Your Onions programme selling at local markets across the city too.
