Food, Farming & Forests - Stories about food, farming & forests (secondary)

Stories about food, farming and forests

Theme Focus


Session for secondary schools


Four stories will take you on a journey along the food supply chain and give you questions to discuss along the way. Animal Aid set the scene by getting us thinking about the land we use to grow food, next up the founders of a pop-up restaurant called Sustainable Food Story share their passion telling diners about how their food is farmed and a volunteer with the Gleaners Network will reveal how they stop large quantities of food becoming compost. The story will be wrapped up by Mike Berners-Lee, author of How Bad Are Bananas? sharing some of the unexpected impacts of our diets and his tips for sustainable food choices.
Teachers will be provided with a one page guide to this session in advance which will include the discussion question that will be posed at the end of each story, some pointers for the discussions and links for further exploration.
