What can I plant now at school?

At school, (2nd level) we have a tunnel, about 20m long with raised beds. Could you give me some ideas on anything transition year students could put in and sell about two weeks before Christmas, and when we could plant. Also could they grow herbs in the tunnel now and lettuce or is it too late. We just want to make some use of it and they can learn so much from this.

It would be a miracle before Christmas... unless you buy in advanced plants and finish them off, but that is tricky without the skills of a qualified horticulturist. 

Try some spring cabbage plants, and seeds of winter lettuce, endive, radish, rocket, mizuna,

Teach them to keep the weeds down!
