PUPILS at Finestrat’s Puig Campana primary school began planting herbs and vegetables in September.

Children aged from two years to 12 are now bringing in lettuces and cabbages from the 200-square metre plot.

Tending the allotment helped pupils learn the values of effort and patience as they watched the produce grow, Finestrat’s Education councillor Maria Dolores Viudes said.


“They also learn that natural products don’t come directly from supermarket shelves,” she remarked.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
