Make sure your school knows about this! Food Growing in Schools London


Make sure your school knows about this! Food Growing in Schools London

All schools in London are invited to get involved in a fantastic new project to support every London school to use food growing to boost learning; encourage healthy and sustainable choices; and connect communities.

This project, led by Garden Organic and supported by the Big Lottery Fund and the Mayor of London, brings together organisations from across the private, public and voluntary sector to build on the great work being done by schools already growing food and to kick start food growing in those not yet involved.

The project partners will be working with new and experienced food growing schools, providing resources and advice; developing skills and expertise; and connecting schools with community volunteers and businesses.

They are asking all London schools to complete a short survey to find out if and how food growing is currently used, and what support would be most useful. There is a chance to win £200 of gardening equipment for your school and a meal for two worth £50, and the first 200 schools to respond will receive 100 Morrisons Let’s Grow vouchers.

Whether your school is growing food or not, your response is very important, and the project partners would be very grateful if you could spare 5-10 minutes to complete the survey, at: http://www.foodgrowingschools.org/survey.  To get involved or find out more about the project please go to http://www.foodgrowingschools.org.
