Free. Registration is required, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
From Farm to Fork is a series of three practical workshops aimed at secondary school students (preferably KS4/KS5) exploring the future of our agricultural landscape today.
A wide range of topics will be explored such as the effect of pesticides on wildlife and consumers and the ways in which these can be reduced or replaced as well as the extraction of lycopene from tomatoes and the enumeration of bacteria from tomatoes (processed/non-processed). We will also explore environmental sustainability of food production, the role of ‘superfoods’ and methods of preventing food spoilage with novel food preservation techniques.
