Fundraising with Wholefoods

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.

Trip to Stanhill Farm

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!

Food growing forum for schools

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 marjon.willers@nhs.net
