Pop-up market brings farm to school for busy families

Project grow is helping make fresh, local produce more easily accessible to busy families.

As Montesorri del Sol parents arrived to pick up their kids after school Monday afternoon, Farmer Clarence was there, operating a pop-up market offering tomatoes and other seasonal delights.

The Project Grow programme brings the farm directly to the parents and children, helping to get important conversations started about where our food comes from and what impact we have on the planet.

“Supporting local sustainability with growing vegetables and eating local and showing the children exactly where it’s coming from, where our food is coming from,” said Montesorri del Sol teacher’s assistant Dawn Eryou. “It’s such a different experience when you’re going to the market and things have traveled so far.”

Project Grow is a familiar name in Cayman’s schools.

Sponsored by Generali, it’s been giving students hands-on experience growing their own vegetables for more than five years.
