With a strong belief that every child should grow up knowing their fruit & veg, where it comes from and how to grow it themselves organically, Harrod Horticultural has swiftly signed up to become a signatory to the RHS DFES Learning Outside The Classroom Manifesto and have launched a spin-off website

The aim of is to encourage and inspire both schools and their children to grow their own whilst it sets out to break down the barriers of involvement such as time, space, knowledge and funding.

Teacher Resource
Whether schools have room to transform a barren playground into a full-on gardening plot or just simply want to experiment on the windowsill of the classroom, help is at hand with plenty of teacher resources. Hints and tips on getting started and simple “how to” steps on all the processes from ground preparation, composting, sowing seed, tending to plants and harvesting are all available. There is even a “jargon buster” page with a glossary of gardening terms explained whilst on-line support exists from Jo, The Head Gardener of the Harrod Horticultural Kitchen Garden Project.
School Gardening Competition
Keeping it fun has been the focus too and there is the opportunity for schools to post their project progress on the website, class learning with fruit & veg fact sheets and fun activity suggestions from planning what to grow through to celebrating the harvest. We’re encouraging a bit of competitive spirit too with competitions catered for all project sizes with £500 of gardening equipment to be won!

Special School Discounts
