Tue 21 Jun 2016

From Field to Plate: How arable crops are grown by farmers to balance the intensive crop farming with looking after the countryside. This workshop looked at the effects of drought and flooding, and how farmers have responded to mitigate against the effects of climate change. Students learnt to identify crops, establish links to crops in everyday foods, and were ‘hands on’ in grinding to make flour. This included: Identification of crops grown by farmers including arable and fodder crops / Ways in which farmers promote biodiversity on their farms, alongside crop production /Linking arable crops to common food use /Processing of arable crops eg milling, grinding, rolling etc. .. Pupils then prepared dough and created individual bread rolls.
