Lessons in Loaf for London Schools
The Worshipful Company of Bakers are offering project grants for five schools in London Boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets.
Lessons In Loaf is a Real Bread Campaign initiative to share with school children that the life of a loaf starts in a field, not a factory. Any school in London can apply to take part and five schools from the chosen boroughs will be selected to receive a 50% towards the costs of running the initative.
Pupils and teachers who sign up for the full Build, Sow, Grow, Harvest and Bake programme will be guided by experienced food growers and bakers through hands-on workshops through the year to:
- Build a planter
- Sow your wheat seeds
- Look after your crop right through to harvest
- Thresh, winnow and mill your wheat
- Bake a loaf of bread to take home and share with family and friends
In addition to the valuable life skills of food growing and bread making, Lessons in Loaf: London touches on many curriculum subjects.
Applications for the full Build, Sow, Grow, Harvest and Bake programme (and, if applicable, the grant) close on Friday 3 May 2019. Find out more here
