Last Day of ‘Food Champions’ Training

Some pictures from our final nutritional session on the ‘Food Champions’ course Jane and I have been attending. We would like to thank Kay Johnson of ‘The Larder’ and Alison Watts of Preston Council for the brilliant course they have run over the last few weeks. It’s been great fun and really helpful. Thanks also to our ‘classmates’, we’ve met some really lovely people who I hope will come down and visit the farm soon.

All being well, we will have both qualified for Food Hygiene and Nutrition Certificates, and we will soon be running our own ‘Cook and Eat’ sessions for the local community.
