#Lockdown Learning

#LockdownLearning design a good snack_73112

We have teamed up with Eat Farm Now and a host of celebrities such as Jimmy Doherty, Charlie Baker and Hannah Jackson, to create a hub of home learning activities and videos linked to food, farming and the great outdoors. Each week we will be choosing a different theme and releasing new resources to keep your children busy during Lockdown.

This week is horticulture week and children can grow their own ‘popcorn plants’ with celebrity botanist, James Wong; design and build a plant propagator from recycled materials; learn about the parts of a plant and sow their own vegetable seeds.

Don’t forget to show us what you’ve been up to by emailing [email protected] or tagging us on one of our social media platforms below.

17 Goals, 17 Cities, 1 Mission… Rethink food

Rethink food_73118​​​​​​​

In 2021, Glasgow will host the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference. To mark this event, our friends at Rethink Food will be working with schools and businesses to give young people the opportunity to highlight the positive actions that can be taken to help us achieve a brighter and more sustainable future.

Using the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, schools will be challenged to complete a social action project linked to food and the environment.

Schools taking part will receive fully funded access to the Rethink Food Futures programme (including a growing tower to keep after the project has been completed). All schools will grow fresh food which they will eat as part of the celebration event to mark the COP26 event.

The project will begin in September with the celebration event planned to coincide with COP26 (date to be confirmed – expected to be Summer 2021). The project has been designed to be an inclusive immersive learning opportunity and provide children with a voice during this global summit.

Express your interest in this fully funded project.​​​​​​​
