Growing up, digging deep: the story of Scouts, food and farming
For over 100 years food has played an important role in the Scout programme.
Through Scouts, young people learn the skills to grow and make food, about the role it plays in keeping us healthy and it’s part in important celebrations.
This exhibition explores the story of food and Scouts through three main themes: grow, make and eat. From learning to use a horse and plough, responding to the needs of a country in wartime, to planning expedition menus and exploring new cultures, we will see how Scouts have evolved and responded to stay relevant to its young people.
