Get Your Primary School Involved!

ELP has a 3-Step Process. 

• Engagement

• Education

• Empowerment

ELP provides resources to primary schools to help them teach their students about Food Security.


Currently 15 schools in counties Mayo and Sligo are participating in the programme - plans are afoot to engage in schools on Dublin and Kerry in 2024. 


Five topics are covered with a lesson plan for each topic provided to teachers via password protected access from ELP’s website. All lessons centre around an easily managed 2m x 2m Food Forest planted in the school garden with the help of ELP’s Schools’ Coordinator.

A Food Forest is a mini ecosystem providing students with a simple roadmap for developing interconnected ecosystems. This mimics a healthy world where everything is connected and those connections are understood and respected.
