Just before the holidays, we ran a stall outside Wholefoods, Camden, as part of a food education project with School Food Matters. This involved travelling to Kent to pick fresh produce for our jams and chutneys. We were raising money for the Rhyl Kitchen project.
Thank you School Food Matters and Wholefoods. A lucky group of Year 2 children had a chance to visit Stanhill Farm in Kent to pick fruit which we will later cook up in chutneys to sell in their stores next month. A beautiful day!
On Monday 20 June, 3.30 – 5.30 we are hosting a forum for schools interested in food growing.
This Forum is a chance to gain inspiration and ideas from another food growing school, share ideas and learn something new through a seasonal activity run by Food Growing Schools: London. We would also like the forum to act as a swap shop, so please bring along any seeds, plants, tools and educational resources you would either like to share, give away or swap with other schools. The forum is open to anyone from Camden & Islington schools involved in or wishing to develop a food growing project. Bookings can be made by emailing email@example.com
We have a new strand to our Growing Ideas enterprise project – exotic mushrooms! Check out these Grey Oysters …
The school is humming with plant science this half term.
This sell-out event was a great success – thank goodness for the great weather! We had nearly 40 delegates for our day of workshops and networking, before Rhyl staff also enjoyed training from the Eden Project after school. Thank you to everyone for making our third annual conference such a great day.
