Year 7 Food Technology learning about seasonal produce - strawberries

20 September 2019

Year 7 have been learning about seasonal produce in Food Technology with teacher Anne Rouse, and this week have been studying strawberries as an example of a fruit that is currently in season. Grown in Australia and transported only from Queensland (not overseas) at this time of year, the current price also reflects their abundance and seasonality. In the two practical applications of this in the curriculum, they have planted strawberries in the school's biodynamic garden, and cooked fresh strawberry jam in the school's food technology kitchen. Complementing the jam, they baked fresh scones, which were all enjoyed together at the end - delicious!
