Wolves Lane: Salad in Schools!
As part of a joint initiative between Wolves Lane Centre and the Schools Catering Service, Wolves Lane have this week begun a pilot scheme, supplying salad crops to some of the school dining halls in Haringey.
Due to its proximity to the Centre, Earlham School seemed an ideal choice for the pilot. Having tasted the tomatoes on a visit to the Centre last week, Marianna Clune-Georgiou, Catering Services Manager of the school, said of the salad and cherry tomatoes, “I can assure you they taste delicious!”
Stuart Hopking, Wolves Lane Centre Manager, said, “We wanted to be able to build on the strong links we already have in the community and to be able to supply locally grown, pesticide and fungicide-free produce in a way that has no negative impact in terms of delivery-miles into the schools that already use our centre for educational purposes. It seemed a natural route of progression.”
Open to the public 7 days a week from 9am-5pm (10am-4pm Sundays).
