Wolvey Primary School

Farmers Market

Friday 22nd June 2012
3.15pm - 5.15pm

This is to invite you to the upcoming Wolvey Primary School Farmers’ Market on Friday 22nd June between 3.15pm and 5.15pm, running as part of an exciting new two year project in Central Warwickshire.

Through a project funded by the Central Warwickshire Leader programme, the Soil Association, Garden Organic and Mid Wales Food and Land Trust are working with 10 schools in Central Warwickshire to set up farmers’ markets in the school hall or playground – organised entirely by pupils. In the classroom, pupils will be applying their enterprise skills to establish regular markets – selling their own school-grown produce as well as that from local and sometimes organic producers.

As well as providing opportunities for pupils to learn about food and farming, the programme helps support small, local producers through the school markets and provides the opportunity for members of the school and wider community to buy local, fresh and seasonal produce and meet the farmers behind the food.

Pupils are involved in running the markets from start to finish. They take responsibility for what happens and the decisions are theirs – enabling schools to communicate the importance of sustainably-produced local food and providing a context for looking at food chain issues and understanding where food comes from. Money raised from producer stall fees and the sale of produce made/grown by the school will go towards further farm visits or food education in their school.
