Readers of our website and blog will know all about our interest in food, our concern for nature and our desire for a fairer society where everyone can enjoy good health. You will also know that when people buy our green electricity and invest in our community share offers, profits go to local good causes.
We are delighted to support Cae Tan’s Sustainable Schools programme with a grant of £2,500 in January 2020.
The programme works with schools in areas of high deprivation, giving children the experience of growing food whilst learning about the environment and about sustainable methods of food production. Teachers love the programme, which achieves so many of the national curriculum’s learning outcomes whilst getting kids out in the fresh air and developing empowering new skills.
The “Seed to Plate” project enables children to grow wheat, tomatoes, onions and herbs which are made into pizza in a wood fired oven for the whole school to enjoy; also green beans, potatoes and other ingredients for a hearty soup shared at a special tasting event for families and friends.
Jessie Kidd from Cae Tan said,
As well as enabling us to deliver our Sustainable Schools programme to 45 children in East Swansea primary schools, this funding will help us secure match funding to deliver the project to even more classes.”
We’re really grateful for what Cae Tan is doing to help ensure that consumers of the future think about food miles, packaging and sustainable agriculture, as well as hopefully having healthy diets and lifestyles and appreciating the value of fresh, local food.
