Last year we launched our sow and grow campaign across the UK and helped over 100,000 kids learn to love healthy food by growing their own in school. This year we thought we’d go even further by doubling it to help 200,000 kids learn the fun of growing their own veg.
We’ve sent out growing pots, seeds and soil to over 6,500 schools across the UK and Ireland so kids across the country can get growing. By growing their own food, kids are much more likely to enjoy eating fruit & veg and continue eating healthily as they grow older.
You can get involved too. We’re also giving away 5000 seed packs to anyone who wants to start growing their own veg at home. Simply head here and fill in your details for a chance to win.
We’ll be popping back here pretty regularly to check in on how everyone’s going (it took all our willpower not to type ‘growing’ there), as well as giving you tips on how to get growing at home.
