Pembrokeshire farmers in the classroom

farmer and children in school

Tenby Church in Wales Primary School had visits from two farmers last term. Walter Simon (right) explained how he grows potatoes, and Roger Lewis talked about dairy farming. The children had prepared a set of questions for them, and held a discussion about local and global food.

This school and others including Narberth Primary and the secondary school Ysgol Dewi Sant were taking part in a project run by FACE and Planed. The idea is to connect schools with farmers and food businesses in Pembrokeshire with the aims of enriching the curriculum, engaging young people in an enquiry into their local food system, and raising awareness of food production and businesses in the county.
