Cash injection to pay for Bedminster vegetable plot
PUPILS from Luckwell Primary School in Bedminster are embarking on a 'grow your own' project.
The project is being funded from a £1,000 donation from The Co-operative as part of an initiative called '366 days to build a better world'.
Through the project, schools throughout the South West were invited to bid to their local Co-operative area committees for £1,000 towards a project that would help to build a better world. In total, five schools across the region were successful.
Luckwell Primary, in Luckwell Road, will develop its 'grow your own' project in order to teach pupils about responsible farming practices and give them practical experience of growing their own vegetables.

Vaughan Nicholas, Kennet and Avon area committee member for The Co-operative Group, said: "We launched this initiative for local Co-operative Trust Schools to involve them in what is such an important year for the whole Co-operative movement.
"Luckwell Primary's new sustainability project will provide a lasting legacy for future pupils at the school and will ensure that pupils are taught about responsible food production and farming from an early age."
Kevin Jones, head teacher at Luckwell Primary, said: "We are very excited to be given this opportunity to create our very own vegetable plot and develop a very special project that will enable our pupils to get their hands dirty and learn all about food production from 'plot to plate'."
