Farm Academy: Clapton kids find out where food comes from
Pupils at Millfields Community School in Clapton transformed their playground into a busy market last month (9 December) as part of an ongoing food education project

The public market was part of the Farm Academy Programme, organised by the Soil Association in a bid show city children about food production.

The children sold locally-sourced fruit and vegetables alongside cakes and Christmas cards made at the school.

The market follows a school trip in October where the children were given the chance to experience life on an organic farm.

Roz Wilson, head of the citizenship and the sustainable schools project at Millfields explained: We went down to a farm in October for three days with 15 children. We milked the cows, looked after the chickens and harvested leaks as long as the kids were tall.

They were fascinated with where food comes from. They tried more vegetables than they probably have in all their lives and they really got a sense of how things work on a farm.

She added: Were just hoping a lot of parents will come and have a look at the vegetables and get interested too.
