Makeshift farms rediscovered
2:48pm Monday 12th March 2012 in Readers' letters
REGARDING ‘Pop-up farms help East Lancashire pupils learn to grow their own food’ (LT, March 8), what goes around comes around.
Fifty years ago many schools had gardens – probably a leftover from the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign of the Second World War.
But most disappeared because they were regarded as an outdated educational practice.
No doubt some bright young thing has ‘rediscovered’ the benefits of school gardening and is making a nice little reputation out of it.
