Bake Your Lawn – Grow a Loaf Challenge 2012
05 December 2011
Would you like to help take kids on the Real Bread journey from seed to sandwich?
So many students never get the chance to see where their food comes from, with many believing that bread merely appears in the supermarket, somehow produced by the vagaries of supermarket science.
Following the success of this year's Bake Your Lawn, The Real Bread Campaign are again challenging schools and youth groups to grow a loaf of Real Bread. The Grow a Loaf Challenge 2012 takes very little space and is a fascinating journey from soil to seed to toaster, and is a great way to get students back in touch with the origins of their food.
If you’re a teacher or work in a community youth group, from the end of January 2012 The Real Bread Campaign will show you how. Visit the official Bake Your Lawn page for more information.
Why not have a look at some of the highlights from this year's campaign in the Wheat Diaries.
For details of how to get hold of a handful of organic wheat and a free grassroots guide showing you how to grow it, mill it, bake it, and eat it, visit The Real Bread Campaign's school section.
If you decide to use your loaf and give it a go, get in touch with us via our Eco-Schools England facebook page and let us know how it went.
