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.
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
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.
