From time to time, we like to tell you about schemes and good causes that might be of interest and benefit to anyone gardening with children. This week its the turn of the Royal Horticultural Society and their Campaign for School Gardening. This initiative aims to encourage and support schools to develop and actively use a school garden, which we think is a fabulous idea!
As part of the campaign, RHS provides teachers with resources, including lesson plans, gardening advice, seasonal activities and lots more. All this is available through their website, along with an extensive programme of training days. You can also organise a free school visit to one of the four RHS gardens?
Once you’ve registered with the scheme you will receive a free start-up kit, regular news and items of interest, rewards and certificates as you progress, free seeds, and access to expert advice.
