Root Camp article in The Herald, Scotland!

Root Camp mentioned in The Herald, Scotland – revving up for Root Camp in Scotland, October 2016!

“Christopher Trotter will be one of the guest chefs featured at the very first Scottish Root Camp later this year.

Up until now, the courses have been running in Devon, Wales and Suffolk, but this year marks the first time camps will take place north of the border.

The Isle of Bute has been chosen as the location and will be run in conjunction with the Mount Stuart Trust. The two weeks, from October 9, will coincide with most school half-term holidays

Root Camp is a social enterprise and cookery school for young adults aged 14-21, but this is more than just a cooking course. Root Camp takes an holistic approach to educating the participants about food and its provenance with the course encompassing a wide variety of disciplines: foraging, farming, cooking, ethical living and all of it whilst encouraging social diversity. They aim to provide full bursaries for up to half of the places on each course, thereby ensuring everyone is able to benefit from the opportunity.”
