Today we are giving you some very good news: We have taken up the Broccolin Project again for this new 2014-2015 course! Friday was our first visit in this new school year and we visited the school “Nuestra Señora del Carmen”, Sant Joan in Alicante.
Yesterday we gave our last talk of the 2013-2014 academic year. We were with kindergarten children at the Julio Verne de Torrente School in Valencia.
We started our day with an activity that we call “The game of colors”, we wanted that these children of 4 and 5 years related the colors of the Rainbow with different fruits and vegetables.Then we tell them the storie of The adventures of Broccolin and then they went home to eat broccoli.
Last week we could go back to the Virgen de las Huertas school thanks to our partner Antonio Ibarra who studied there before high school. Broccolin gave a pet to the winners of the recipes contest.
Last week, from the 7th to the 9th of May, a series of workshops for students in kindergarten and primary school was held on the engineering campus at the Polytechnic University of Cartagena (UPCT). Broccolin was the main focus of one entitled “The taste of agriculture”.
Hello Broccoli Fans! Today we’ll tell you about our experience at Lorca health week. Thanks to our companion Jaime Calabuig, our friend Roque Jimenez had the opportunity to visit the Juan Navarro School with some of the players from the La Hoya de Lorca football team, commonly known as Clockwork Broccoli.
A few days ago we visited Molinos Marfagones, a village near Cartagena. There we were at the CEIP Comarcal Azorin playing with the kindergarten pupils.
This visit was a little special and different from all that they had done before, so Broccolin was like a guest in the days “the protagonist”, a few days in which the parents of the kids going to class and have what are dedicated.
At Broccoli Passion we are rewarding the creativity of kids in the kitchen. As you know, with our Broccolin Project we are visiting different schools on the Mediterranean in order to explain the importance of having a good diet rich in fruits and vegetables to the little ones in a funny way.
Last week the fallas were held in Valencia, the cities’ most important festivals. Broccolin was very excited to be able to participate in these celebrations because we love the fireworks, the firecrackers and the ‘monuments’ that make hundreds of satirical criticisms. In addition the city is filled with light and colour, there is a unique atmosphere, people flood the streets, there are doughnut and chocolate stalls on every corner and the days are endless.
This week the Broccolin Project has travelled to Lorca to visit the Virgen de las Huertas school. Lorca is a city that stands out as the third most important town in the Region of Murcia, after the City of Murcia and Cartagena. It is also one of the regions of Spain which produces and exports the most broccoli. So to our Broccolin Project it has felt like home, in a landscape characterised by the intense green of the crop.
This week, following the Broccolin Project, we have moved a second time to the municipality of Totana, a municipality of Murcia where there is extensive broccoli farming, alongside other horticultural crops such as lettuce and artichoke.
