Growing Together Cooking together
We offer a specially designed programme which lasts a full year.
Called Growing Together Cooking Together, this programme allows pupils to experience the 12-month cycle in the garden while developing team work and horticultural skills. They spend time in our cook school and restaurant, learning to make complementary dishes to serve at a harvest festival in their school, using produce grown in their own handmade wooden planters, the building of which is supported by our in-house joinery team.
The planters are located in the school grounds or at a location of choice. Embedded in this programme is the sustainability message - locally grown food in a healthy soil - and is ideal for supporting personal growth in addition to addressing issues around food poverty. Each child completes a diary, recording detailed instructions and, should the school wish to continue the programme, we encourage each child to mentor a younger pupil to enable a process of ‘learn, practice, teach.’
Growing Together Cooking Together course fees available on request.
