FACE congratulates its member, Barleylands, and Education Officer Karen Watson who has won the accolade of Food and Drink Hero 2012 for Essex.
Karen has shown true dedication to changing the world of food within Essex through her many roles, from heading up the Education Team at Barleylands, to food educator and farmers wife!
Karen believes strongly in the education of young people and shares her knowledge of local farming, healthy eating and cooking through the education programme and cookery school at Barleylands, touring local schools providing interactive and informative assemblies and supporting national and local initiatives highlighting the merits of Essex food and farming.
Karen works closely with FACE and is currently supporting a number of assemblies in local schools to highlight the importance of understanding where our food comes from.
Well done Karen and keep up the excellent work!
