Jamie Oliver launches his Kitchen Garden Project to meet the needs of the new compulsory food education curriculum. Nathan James Dodd finds out how schools can get involved.
Jamie Oliver has launched a brand new project aimed at primary schools to help them meet the needs of the new compulsory food education curriculum in England.
Kitchen Garden Project
Entitled Jamie Oliver's Kitchen Garden Project, schools will be able to access hundreds of recipes, lessons, gardening topics, nutrition advice and much more. Resources also coincide with the fact that practical cookery is now a compulsory part of the National Curriculum.
School membership includes:
- 200 Jamie Oliver recipes tailored to primary school children
- Lesson plans, teaching tips, downloadable posters, fact sheets, plus lots more (all meet the requirements of the new compulsory cooking curriculum)
- Gardening resources to help integrate the school garden and wider learning objectives
- Unique online profile and community membership
