Notes

The Eastfeast method is based on children working an allotment, or garden space in the school grounds, through the seasons. A series of seasonal outdoor events concludes with a communal feast. Both the process and the concluding event create opportunities for the children and the school to celebrate and share their activities and products, both edible and artistic. Families and local volunteers play a very important part in the learning process. We never engage with a school for less than a full academic year and that has to be preceded by adequate planning time. We run a successful Continuing Professional Development programme for teachers, artists, horticulturists, parents etc. Eastfeast works with all school levels across Suffolk and in Essex and Norfolk too.
