Friesians' trip to FGR
On Wednesday 4th December, Friesian class went to Forest Green Rovers football club to find out more about sustainability, and to take part in a cookery session with the club's chef, Jade. We learned all about taking care of the environment, how FGR are the greenest football club in the world, how their soap is made from the grass cuttings from the pitch, how seaweed is used to feed the grass and how they don't use chemicals to make it grow. We learned that the players are vegan, and their t-shirts, shorts and shin-pads are made from bamboo. They have a mow-bot to mow the grass and it takes three days! They want to build the first wooden stadium.
We also learned how to make vegan burgers. We chopped up the vegetables (the onions were very hard and everybody cried a lot!) , mixed the ingredients and cooked them in a pan. They were delicious! Maybe we can make some more at home!
