'Green Shoots - Healthy Living' with Green Up Your Act Education
By tracing the journeys of different varieties of fruit and vegetables, we discover how far food travels to reach our plate. We discuss how food is grown, the benefits of fresh food and the responsibility we all share to reduce the huge amount of packaging and food thrown away every day.
To emphasise how much fun it can be to grow your own food that is both healthy and reduces food miles, pupils will make paper pots planted with vegetable seedlings or growing micro greens. Pupils will also be shown how to make an up-cycled watering can. The seedlings can be taken home or grown at school enabling pupils to observe how the plants change and develop over time.
As our feedback demonstrates, our services have proven to be ecologically progressive, educational, and fun. We are happy to tailor our programmes to your specific educational requirements and everything we make or grow can be taken home to enjoy. Get in touch today to find out what we can offer your school!
