    Food growing should be promoted in all schools. We can encourage all schools to aim to get at least one thing in the school dinner per day from the garden – even if it is just mint in the peas. The garden can be integrated in to all aspects of the school day and curriculum and opens up kinesthetic and practical learning as well as more visual/auditory.
    We should also look to integrate cooking into the schools, many do not have access to kitchens, but there is a schools cooking bus in Wales, that have been commissioned at great cost, but now mothballed due to excessive running costs. However the Welsh Government seems unwilling to allow this bus to be used in other countries of the UK to amortise the costs and thus make it available to Welsh children – maybe we should be seeking to regain access to this.

    Getting children thinking of Food Metres as opposed to food miles and knowledge of production and preparation will support sustainable communities and allow us to build a Commonwealth of Value iin our communities. Enablement is the key.

    Agriculture produces a lot of nitrate pollution affecting rivers and seas so should be reflected on the website and not as food production on a small scale community project
