Tomatoes, Peppers and Aubergines

Posted: 11th June 2024

The Sustainability Council had a fascinating visit to Valley Grown Nurseries in Nazeing to learn more about food production on Monday. We learnt how the 3rd largest vegetable packing plant in the country supplies the supermarkets with perfect fresh vegetables all year round. Aiden and Arun definitely win the prizes for the most questions asked to “Jimmy” the Site Manager! The next time the Council members have tomatoes,     peppers or carrots at the dinner table they’ll know exactly how they got there! Many thanks to Aiden (3KI) and his father who arranged the visit.
