Following Julie’s very well received presentation at the ELAA conference a couple of weeks ago, we are excited to tell you that we have been approached by the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation to be a pilot centre in their new Early Years program – a project that is working to design a kitchen garden model specifically for the early years sector. The Foundation’s goal is for children to “cook and eat food that they grow” – Julie and Tommy will be participating on behalf of CCC. Julie has also agreed to repeat her conference presentation for the Stephanie Alexander team – while they have expertise working with primary school aged children, they have recognised that different approaches and skills are needed when working with younger children. I can’t think of a better person to show them the way!!
