Food Discovery

We teach children how to grow vegetables and herbs, cook healthy meals and to understand where food comes from.

Food Discovery is about enabling children to understand and explore where their food comes from and provides opportunities for them to succeed.  All Food Discovery projects have farm visits at their heart and children also have the chance to grow food in the school grounds or at a local allotment, as well as learn to cook some meals with the sorts of ingredients they are learning to grow.

Seeing crops grow in fields and comparing what the farmer does on the farm with what they are doing in school gives children a real understanding of the value of the countryside. It also helps them appreciate that the countryside is useful as well as a fun and relaxing place to be.
