We encourage schools to make seasonal visits so children can see the changing seasons and produce available. We find this deeply embeds the science they experience over time.

Visit 1 Sept/ Oct: Garden tasting and cooking with produce from the gardens. What’s seasonal and healthy to eat?

View of outdoor kitchen and cob ovenVisit 2 Feb/March: Seed sowing and farm tour. Where does our food come from?

Visit 3 April/May: Pond dipping and mini beasts. Explore lifecycles and what a habitat is.

Visit 4 June/July: Pick It Eat It – harvest and cook the vegetables you have grown. Pollination, introduction to vegetable families and which parts of a plant we eat.

The fact that they had  visits spread out over a series of months was key to this, because the children got to see the farm change and grow over time. To end on a picking and cooking session was just amazing.”
