Edible Forest

Especially suitable for younger children, this tour introduces students to the wide variety of foods that come from rainforest environments. Many children do not realise that the foods they eat originate in tropical climates so this tour aims to get children thinking about what they eat, where it comes from, who creates it and how it gets to their table.
