Foodie pupils show bottle.
Pupils from Damson Wood Infants in Solihull collected hundreds of two-litre plastic bottles to help make the innovative construction and give themselves a place to learn about and enjoy organic, homegrown food.
The bottles were threaded onto bamboo canes then fixed to a wooden frame. The greenhouse is being used to grow tomatoes.
Damson Wood is recognised as a national leader on food education by the Food for Life Partnership, which is made up of The Soil Association, Garden Organic, the Health Education Trust and the Focus on Food Campaign.
Head teacher Marilyn Phipps said: "Our organic growing area is a great opportunity for our children to learn about food."
