Pupils to benefit from mobile garden
11:30am Sunday 3rd June 2012 in News
A mobile garden will tour schools in the Bradford district to teach youngsters how to grow their own food.
The trailer, which was paid for by a £300 grant from the Craven Trust, will be used to provide sessions on food, health and outdoor living to hundreds of pupils.
The Shipley and Keighley branch of the educational charity Pre-School Learning Alliance, which has developed the project, said it will be rolled out to under-fives once it secures more funding. Support officer Anja Wadsworth said: “We are very excited about getting this initiative off the ground.
“The communities served by the mobile garden will have access to a very different kind of resource, which they can use even if they don’t have permanent premises or an outdoor space.”
