100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 26 January 1917. Cultivation of School Gardens. The Board of Education have issued a circular to local education authorities with reference to the digging up of school gardens for the cultivation of potatoes. This suggestion, says the Board, would involve the abandonment or curtailment of the ordinary courses of instruction given in connection with school gardens. The Board of Agriculture has been consulted, and they do not desire that the ordinary courses of gardening instruction should be seriously disturbed. They regard, in fact, the maintenance of efficient instruction in gardening, and particularly in the growing of the most useful vegetables with special regard to food values, as very important at the present time. They are anxious that children should be made to feel they are doing national work by growing vegetables for the nation’s need, and believe that in time to come they will like to think, young as they were, they did their part in the great war.
