Agri Aware today launched its popular Incredible Edibles primary school programme for families to participate in during the current period of school closures and social distancing measures.
Agri Aware is encouraging families to learn all about where food comes from and the importance of consumption of Irish fruit and vegetables, for a healthy, balanced diet through its new Incredible Edibles Family Challenge.
The Incredible Edibles Family Challenge sets looks to educate and entertain all ages from planting and reusing materials at home to learning facts and getting creative.
Any parent can sign up their children for free and on completion of the tasks, may be in with a chance to win some prizes, worth up to €175.
Parents are simply asked to take pictures of the worksheets provided for on the Incredible Edibles website and write a description on what they did for each task. There are also two levels to facilitate different abilities of learning: beginner and advanced.
“Agri Aware is delighted to launch our popular Incredible Edibles Family Challenge programme to primary school children and their families during this period of social distancing, which is sometimes challenging, especially for young families.”, said Marcus O’Halloran, executive director at Agri Aware.
“Due to the rise in popularity in gardening and growing Irish produce in recent weeks, we felt it was the right time to launch this new programme that is based on our well-known Incredible Edibles programme, which over 1,000 primary schools have taken part in every year, for the last 12 years.
“We’d like to thank our patrons and sponsors for their support of Incredible Edibles Family challenge and dedication to Incredible Edibles down through the years.”, said O’Halloran.
