This week Spring has sprung and thoughts will be returning to the school garden once again. Do you grow fruit and vegetables in your school grounds? We thought you might like to know about a campaign being run by Dorset Cereals. One of their aims is to make it government policy for every school to have an Edible Playground. That way all children have a chance to learn where food comes from.
If like us, you think this is a great idea why not sign their petition here to get every child sowing, growing and eating. The petition will be sent to The Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families.
If you want to start or extend your own edible playground then why not have a look at some of our simple growing ideas. Our potato growing kits are a great activity for children to do themselves and bring so much excitement at harvesting time.
They are only £10.99 including potatoes and we are doing some great discounts for larger orders.
For growing in a larger area we also do a good selection of easy-to-assemble raised beds. With no nails, no screws and no holes to dig, they can be positioned on soil or hard-standing, making them so easy to use and very flexible in the school grounds.
If you are embarking on gardening activities for the first time and need some advice don’t forget to Ask The Expert and we will do our best to help! Love Your Environment and Happy Gardening!
