Free Seed Packs From Innocent Drinks
We’ve teamed up with Grow It Yourself on a project called the Big Grow.
We want to encourage kids to grow their own veg to help them better understand where their food comes from. We believe that by growing it themselves, kids are much more likely to eat (and enjoy eating) fruit and veg and continue with healthy eating habits for the rest of their lives. Teachers can get their hands on free growing packs and lesson plans for the whole class by signing up here.
Share your Big Grow photos, videos, ideas and inspiration using the hashtag #theBigGrow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and we’ll pick the best of the bunch each week to receive brilliant prizes. Plus, one lucky school will be crowned Big Grow School of the Year and win a load of great gardening equipment and smoothies for their class.
All winners will get loads of smoothies (of course). UK winners will also receive a shiny new wheelbarrow, bird feeders, ’Grow, Cook, Eat’ – a guide to cooking and growing your own food, hand tool sets, seed selections, watering cans and kids’ Hi-Vis vests. The Irish winners will get their hands on GIY vouchers and a class trip to Bloom in the Park, Dublin.
