Urban Farming

From farm to fork, we love our food!

 

A visit to a small farm is a great day out for pupils, with fresh air, fun and a whole lot of mud

We’re proud to work in partnership with Liverpool YMCA at Dutch Farm in Garston, Liverpool.  Here are our top 3 reasons to love the place:

  1. Their mission is to engage homeless and disadvantaged local people in practical and sustainable food-related projects that inspire health and wellbeing
  2. It’s a great educational trip for the whole class, with so much to discover about looking after animals, what goes into growing crops and what different plants need to thrive, and even an arts and crafts centre
  3. They produce top quality jams, fresh fruit and veg, and eggs laid each day by their resident ducks and chickens – perfect for whipping up a delicious cake!
