Discovery Zone

The Charlie Bigham’s Discovery Zone

The Discovery Zone had three fun and interactive areas for all the family:
Field to Fork – Waste Not, Want Not – Sustainable Food and Farming

Our ‘Soapbox’ hosted a number of speakers, posing questions like:
‘Did you know that cows eat cornflakes?’ and ‘Did you know that chickens can lay blue eggs?’

There were also some exciting activities aimed specifically at the kids, including The Bath & West Farm Yard,
and Noah’s Ark Pre-School joined us to encourage children to roll up their sleeves and learn how to make
some simple, but very tasty, lunches.

FIELD TO FORK

Field to Fork focussed on where our local food comes from, looking specifically
at the cow: what do cows eat, what happens to milk before we drink it, and what are we actually eating when we bite into a sirloin steak?

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

Waste Not, Want Not looked at how we can all, both as individuals and groups, combat food waste, from reducing everyday plastic usage and producing our own compost to recycling on a larger scale.

SUSTAINABLE FOOD AND FARMING

Sustainable Food and Farming explored some of the food sources currently available that use sustainable farming methods, such as seaweed and aquaponics, with local producers Ebb Tides and Bioaqua.
