Illustrations from the story of Frank and the Pea Stalk

Harvest school resources

Our Harvest resources focus on the story of Frank, in Malawi, who has been struggling to grow food in the face of climate change.

Our resources feature an assembly, slideshow and a special Harvest Story.

This story is an adaptation of the classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. But our big, ugly ogre isn’t a giant; it’s climate change. And our hero doesn’t get to destroy the ogre; he learns to live alongside it. Oh, and our beans are peas because it’s magical peas that are helping farmers, like Frank, in Malawi to adapt to the effects of climate change and grow enough food to eat.

The Harvest assembly can follow the story of Frank and the Pea Stalk, or it can be delivered separately.

This tells the story of Frank and the Pea Stalk. The illustrations are available in our slideshow presentation listed below.
