What do they do?
Unicorn is a co-operative organic grocery with a strong ethical/sustainability policy.
What support is offered to Schools?
Visits to the grocery in small (15 pupils max.), supervised groups are welcome. Workers from the co-operative will also talk to school groups about co-operative principles and practice.
Example of activities
Unicorn has a living roof that features a small pond. This is a perfect example of how local bio-diversity can be developed using potentially redundant spaces. They are aiming to attract bird life that is diminishing in the area. Visitors are able to see for themselves how the tranformation has attracted a wide variety of insects/birds.
They are linked to Glebelands, an organic market garden in Sale -visiting both places would enable pupils to see where food is grown and how it is sold.
