Little Green Fingers

Jayne has run an After School Gardening Club for six years at the local primary school and has written this book which amalgamates those six years into one school year (from September to July).
The book introduces children to the fun and wonder of growing food and, best of all, cooking and eating it (the eating bit is always popular with the children!). It also covers more crafty items (using garden items grown or foraged) as the seasons changed and going outside became too cold and dark.
Jayne says, “Trying to encourage the children to ‘grow your own’ and look after the environment and wildlife has been quite a challenge at times but they seem to get such enjoyment from it, you can’t help but be inspired by them.”
