Piglets and bees : our visit to West Ulverstone Primary, Grade 2

Some mornings are a joy to get up to.  And today was one of them!

As you know we deliver fresh veggies each week to around 20 Primary Schools along the North West Coast, and we run Veggie Gardening classes in seven of those schools as well.  Well today I took a couple of farmers with me to visit the Grade 2 class at West Ulverstone Primary…….

West Ulverstone Grade 2 Farmers visitEliza from Mount Gnomon Farm and Matthew from Twelve Acre Wood Honey came with me and we chatted with the children about what they ate for dinner last night – and where did they think that food came from.  Was it grown in Tasmania?  In Australia?  Or did it come from another country?

Then we got down to the nitty gritty.  Did they like bacon?  Where did that come from?  And what about honey?

We spent a good hour and a half discussing all kinds of things. It was enormous fun!

A huge thanks to Eliza and Matthew for giving up their time and to West Ulverstone for taking up our offer of a farmer visit. If you are interested in us bringing a farmer or two to your school give us a call and we’ll see what we can do!
