Thirty one Year One students at St. Mary’s Primary School recently had their very own homemade pizza fest. The Edible Garden staff team Tia Perrella, Mitch Burt (pictured) and Sarah Wilberforce lit the cob oven ready to bake pizzas for the whole class and together with teacher, Claire Legg, they helped each child to make a pizza from scratch.
This practical connection with food and cooking is part of the ongoing HOME in Bridport project at the school where children, teachers and parents work together to understand where food comes from, how it is vital to our lives and how the choices we make affect our health and wellbeing.
The project is now also providing nurture sessions in the garden, as well as continuing to provide the school kitchen fresh vegetables each week. Civic dignitaries from all the Dorset towns visited recently and were highly impressed with the School and its focus on good food.
