A good example of the learning experiences associated with food, can be seen with the some fresh wheat provided by Farmer Ritchie. The children have learnt that some of this wheat can be milled and used to bake our bread, make pizza dough and even a birthday cake. Some of the wheat has been germinated to make wheat grass for salads and juice, some has provided food for the chooks and some has been sown in our garden to create a fresh crop of wheat. In the course of this process children learnt more than the value of wheat. They learnt to take turns, be responsible for their chores, co-operate with their peers and engage with each other over a meal.
