M.P Michael Gove Education Secretary of State

All schools should have an allotment. Children are the ones who will up-teach their parents, the benefits of having veg grown at home. Studies have shown that interaction with soil is good for your brain, it also has a multi level of educational uses. Nutrition – Biology – Chemistry- Maths- P,E It has always astounded me that a government would not use a spare corner of a School to produce their own veg. Defra could come up with some standards for the soil, and the allotments could be looked over by a voluntary local group of knowledgeable allotmenteers. Locals could donate, so it may not even cost at all, just time and effort.
