Schools to Market Farm Trips
This week 320 lucky children left their classrooms and headed out to farms in Surrey and Cheltenham to harvest some fresh fruit and veg.
They will now head back to school with the carrots, beetroot and berries they picked to cook up delicious chutneys and sauces. Then in just 2 weeks time on July 12, they will be selling their creations at their local Whole Foods Market to raise money for their food education programs.
Thanks to Primrose Vale Farm in Cheltenham and Crockford Bridge Farm in Surrey for welcoming our schools.
