So far, the team of volunteers has planted herbs, strawberries, chillies, carrots, courgettes, tomatoes, broccoli and blackcurrant.

The Travelling Tea Ladies have been able to bake cakes for the volunteers using produce from the garden, including chocolate mint cupcakes and gooseberry and elderflower muffins,and students are expected to choose the next produce to plant.
