Last week we sent out growing kits to over 3,000 schools across the country with the aim of helping over 100,000 school kids to discover the fun of growing their own veg. Pots, soil and seeds, everything you need (except from water, which seemed like a bit much to send through the post). A week or so in, we thought we’d check in to see how their growing is going.
Flamstead End Primary school above is going strong with some already impressive shoots of, we think, spinach. It could be peas. They’re fairly similar in the very early stages. Think of it like a cliffhanger, Jack Bauer himself couldn’t cope with this suspense.
And Shorne Church of England Primary School clearly have some sort of powers when it comes to cress growing. Probably not that useful a super power though. It probably wouldn’t get you into the X-Men. But when you need a garnish for an egg sandwich, you’ll be laughing.
There’s still plenty of ways to get involved with sow & grow. Head to the sow & grow website to find growing guides, activities and all the updates from the thousands of schools taking part.
