Schoolyard Farms : Create healthier communities by teaching ki…

"We really believe that by showing kids where food comes from and how its grown, and then connecting it to the food they are actually eating, then they are way more excited about it and way more likely to eat it" Schoolyard Farms is not your typical school garden. We were founded as means to make school gardens self-sustaining, when time-strapped teachers and dedicated parents are unable to manage a full-time, labor-intensive project in perpetuity. Schoolyard Farms is the only organization in Oregon scaling-up a school garden to a school farm and growing food on a production level so it can be sold to the community, generating revenue to sustain the farm. This model not only sustains the school farm, it generates urban farm jobs, feeds the community, and acts as an outdoor classroom and can be replicated at other schools. The support of Schoolyard Farms means the support of a healthier, more equitable food-system and a healthier, more equitable Oregon.

Good Mud Seed Swap challenge!
At the Seed Swap find seeds of something wacky, something you would like to try and haven’t before or something exotic. Grow it at home or grow it at Good Mud. Let us know how you get on!

David from Good Mud will be going to the Seed Swap. Rob and Diane, who organise the Swap, have said that they can make seed bombs with the children and from last year I would recommend the tea and cake! Rob is a supporter and helps us with the growing at Good Mud! So…

The thirteenth North Devon Seed Swap will be held at The Small School, Hartland (off the A39) on Sunday February 7th 2015, from 10.30am-3pm. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any seeds to bring, come along, get some for free and bring them back to next year’s swap! There will be lots of growers, plenty of chat and light refreshments. Feel free to donate a cake!

For more details please contact Rob Meredith on 01409 254450
or d.lee21@btinternet.com
