Each year, schools participating in Agri Aware's Incredible Edibles Healthy Eating project will have the opportunity to win a number of prizes, including a visit to the National Botanical Gardens, a VIP trip for a class to visit Country Crest, growing sun-bubbles or greenhouses for the school and more!
Over 1,300 schools registered for Incredible Edibles in 2019, with Montessori, Gaelscoils, Home schools and Special Schools included in these numbers.
Schools across the country submitted their Incredible Edibles logbooks after completing the 2019 project and Agri Aware's Incredible Edibles Team had the hard task of shortlisting 20 entries and finally deliberating to select the overall winners.
