It then puts them into a newspaper type page and issues it for all to see.
If you follow us on Twitter ( @IERossendale ) then you may well have seen it already. If not, then you can have a look here:…Continue

Photos of BRGS have already been posted, with more from the other Schools to follow.
Why not ask your childrens' School if they would like a mention on our site? Great publicity for everyone!

Incredible Edible Rossendale, would like to invite you to participate in Incredible Edible at Work.

There is no excuse for not growing anything – if you don’t have any land, you certainly have windowsills where you can grow lettuce, rocket, or herbs. You can grow tomatoes…Continue
