Pledging with: Lea Valley Growers' Association

The pledge:

The Association would be pleased to facilitate visits from learners to the growers so that they can experience how fresh produce is grown and have the opportunity to taste healthy fruit and learn how to prepare and cook the fruit.

The Association represents growers situated just 15 miles from Piccadilly Circus who grow 80 Million Cucumbers (75% of the UK’s yield) and 200 Million Sweet Salad Peppers (50% of the UK’s Yield) each year along with Tomatoes, Aubergines and Lettuce.

The enthusiasm displayed by learners when they are invited to taste different colour Tomatoes and try a Cucumber or a Sweet Salad Pepper is overwhelming.

In our experience the majority of learners have not had the opportunity to taste healthy fresh produce and it is not an option at home due to a lack of knowledge from their grown ups of how to prepare and cook it.
