Growing pea shoots
Pea shoots are delicious raw or cooked and easy to grow indoors all year round in just a few days, or outdoors in the spring and summer. They are delicious in all kinds of dishes, from salads and sandwiches to frittata and pasta.
For older participants, growing pea shoots can provide a hands-on, sensory activity and is a great opportunity to reminisce and generate discussion. For younger participants, this growing activity is a great way to link the food we eat back to its roots – where and how it is grown.
