This is a recent piece of work led by Emma from Get Growing which has come to an end, the project aim was to introduce horticulture to the curriculum in a way in which it linked with the enterprise and business at a local Powys school.
Students were offered a contract to supply veg to the Cwm Harry Food Company with Emma on hand to run some weekly sessions to offer the necessary growing skills. The students have successfuly developed a productive garden and managed to produce a range of produce for sale. The key moment came about when they were handed a cheque for the sale-able produce they had managed to grow. This is a kind of initiative, although just in small scale here that could be developed significantly in the future.. watch this space fo further developments!
