A week of food education fun

19 September 2018

We've been busy bees this week running food education activities across the capital.

As part of our Young Marketeers Harvest Sale, six Southwark primary schools attended a workshop run by the education team at Brogdale Collections where they learnt about planting, harvesting and storing apples. A cooking session at Borough Market then saw the students try delicious apple recipes to help them make good use of all the autumn fruit growing at schools and gardens in their community. Purchase their surplus apples and pears alongside seven other schools selling school-grown veg on October 4 from 11 to 1.30pm at Borough Market.

Meanwhile over in Leyton, we're joining in the fun at Countryside Live, a two day event for schools, teachers and pupils to be inspired and excited by countryside learning. We'll be running hands-on food growing activities and the London Bee Keepers Association will be hosting a mini-lesson in honeybees using an observation colony of live bees with over 40 schools.
