Campaign to get every school a food-growing school

A broad coalition of education and gardening charities, including the GGA has launched a new report calling for all children to be taught food-growing skills in school.

Supported by celebrities such as Alan Titchmarsh the report, which has now been sent to ministers at the Departments for Education, Health and to Defra, makes the case that teaching children how to grow food should be a vital tool in helping them towards a healthier diet and thus reducing childhood obesity and other nutritionally related illnesses among children.

It goes on to explain how this initiative could help the new government to achieve key objectives such as raising educational standards and contribute towards building a “Big Society”.
