The Aim of the project is to develop an active partnership with local schools and Abergavenny Food Forum. It is intended to develop a circular pilot project which will encompass all phases of produce /cooking /composting /growing /planting / vegetable harvest.
The project will add and enhance the school education curriculum, focusing on growing, cooking, farming and producing food in a practical way, working with farmers, growers, producers, chefs and businesses in the Monmouthshire area.
The intention is to enable the pupils to link directly to food, cooking and farming and influence the curriculum for future development in schools.
It will encourage the development of a programme of learning which will include education about produce /seasonality and growing cycles and to offer practical involvement in all elements of the food cycle where appropriate and to establish an active engagement in the national curriculum.
