Channel Island schools go from planter to plate with Tindle stations

Tindle radio stations Channel 103 and Island FM have joined forces with KPMG in the Crown Dependencies for the Rainbow Allotment Project.

Planters, soil and seeds have been delivered to twelve primary schools in Jersey and Guernsey where children will grow unusually coloured and shaped vegetables.

From round carrots to mixed lettuce, the children are learning about a variety of vegetables and can witness the benefits of healthy, home-grown produce.

Jersey schools taking part are Samares School, Les Landes Primary, d’Auvergne School, St Peter’s Primary, St Mary’s Primary and Grouville School.

In Guernsey, this year’s participating schools are Vale Primary School, Haute Capelles, Vauvert Primary School, Castel Primary School, Amherst Primary School and St Mary & St Michael Catholic Primary.

The project supports KPMG’s target of being a net zero organisation by 2030 by inspiring young islanders to develop a love of plants, growing and the environment.

Presenters from Channel 103 and Island FM will be following the children’s progress across the summer term and visiting the schools to record an end of term podcast.
