Passage West: Local Notes

Five transition year students from St. Peter’s Community School, Passage West, are among the thousands of students from across Ireland who are discovering that ‘The Future IS Food’. It’s an innovative experiential learning programme created by Bord Bia, and The TASTE Council of Ireland.

Darina Allen visited the Passage West school and declared their apple and blackberry jam was “delicious” when she tasted it as part of a visit to the school to talk to them about some of the ways in which she and other local artisan producers produce cordials, chutneys, jams, pestos, pickles and jellies from ingredients freely available in woodlands and hedgerows.
