There’s a huge amount of evidence for the benefits gardening has in schools. It improves pupils’ concentration, creativity, knowledge and understanding of the world, and above all it’s fun! This year we’re delighted to support school gardening with these two initiatives.
School gardening competition – 24 March to 22 May 2020
We’re running a school gardening competition for schools over the Spring. As well as being fun, it’s a great chance for children to get creative and experiment with growing. If you want to take part, look out for our competition sheet and details on how to enter on the 24th March.
In 2018 we ran a survey on school gardening among primary school head and deputy head teachers. Have a look at the benefits they see from school gardening in our report.
