Cae Tân CSA Sustainable Schools Programme
Project Category: Community Business
Cae Tân is a Community Supported Agriculture Project (CSA) based on The Gower Peninsula in South Wales. We grow and supply fresh, seasonal, biodynamic produce to our members weekly throughout the year. Our Sustainable Schools programme enables us to work with 5 schools in Swansea to raise awareness of sustainable farming and to reconnect children and young people to the land and their food. We offer a range of activities to engage schools including our Seed to Plate pizza project which runs from March to October and our Grow your own Soup project from October to March. For the Pizza project we show pupils how to grow wheat, tomatoes, onions, flowers and herbs. They winnow and grind the wheat to flour, then have a celebration day where they bake pizzas for the whole school in a wood fired oven! The soup project enables pupils to learn about food production throughout the seasons, visiting the farm and culminating in a soup celebration day with friends and family.
We are grateful for the funding support from Greggs, The Ernest Cook Foundation and Gower Power which has enabled Cae Tân to employ a part time education officer to deliver this programme.
