Pamper Indulge and Give (P.I.G) are a charitable organisation in Croydon who teach children aged 5 â€“ 11 years old about health, wellbeing and fitness.
Their other Patron that’s involved is Mr Wilfred Emmanuel- Jones, The Black Farmer and he told us why it’s important to him to get involved with this project.
“Giving children first hand experience of the land and growing things is invaluable. So many young people today have never made the connection between the land and the food they eat,” says Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, The Black Farmer. “This is why I am really proud to be part of the Green Project and to be actively building greater awareness of the role of the land and farming in our lives and the part we can all play in growing food locally and sustainably.”

The Director of the Pamper Indulge and Give, Charlene Charles states that it is important that children learn where food comes from as when we asked them where food comes from, they really don’t know. This project is important to us so that children learn more skills that they can take with them into adulthood and understand the importance of sustainably. It also keeps the children focused and away from knife crime and learn more about their community.
