WELLY BOOT BROTH by artist Mark Mechan, September 9th 2021
Broth doesn’t grow on trees … … but maybe it grows in gardens.
Elliot loves a good bowl of soup, but his Dad wonders if there is a healthier way other than straight from a tin.
Setting out to grow his own broth – with a little help from his brother, sister, Mum and Dad – Elliot discovers that a garden is home to more than just a vegetable plot … the wildlife wants to have its say, too. Elliot finds out that growing vegetables takes time and patience – but it only takes a moment to dream up some fun and adventures.
