Health and Wellbeing - Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden - Tuesday (mornings) S2 2022

Volunteers are required at Beckenham Primary School to help the children in cooking classes. The experience is very rewarding in witnessing the journey from garden to plate and the revelations the children experience in regard to basic nutrition.  Volunteers will help the teacher with general support in the classroom, maintenance in the garden and will assist the children through theory based lessons. Helping with cleaning up after the session is also important.
