Growing clubs

Resources to support planning and setting up a growing club in your school.

School gardens can provide pupils with a wide range of experiential learning experiences, enabling them to learn first-hand how a range of food is grown, harvested and prepared/cooked.

Growing food in your school can be as simple as growing herbs on the windowsill, potatoes in buckets or tomatoes in grow bags, to reclaiming an unused section of the playground, even if it is tarmac.
