The countdown to the first of the Peak District Markets has started. Teachers and pupils alike are a hardy lot here in Derbyshire and despite snowdrifts and blizzards preparations are well underway. Jane came over from the Mid Wales Food and Land Trust to run some ‘planning workshops’ at Monyash, Brassington and Dove Holes primary schools. The pupils proved to be very creative and enterprising with their ideas. A few got carried away thinking about chocolate fountains, Easter eggs and popcorn though! Some teachers had very worried expressions and were starting to wonder what they had let themselves in for.

October has just whizzed by and it was a very busy month here in London. Early October saw me back at Bore Place Farm on the fourth residential visit with Millfields Primary School from Hackney. We caught the tail end of that lovely hot weather for the first couple of days which was a real treat. We did an apple tasting activity on the first afternoon - 8 heritage varieties - with wonderful names such as Sunset, Jester,and Michaelmas Red. On the final afternoon we walked to the orchard that the apples were from, and everyone was able to pick their favourite apple to take home.
