Children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. When we live in a financially difficult time, where more and more people think they can’t afford fresh seasonal produce, it’s invaluable to help children get access to fresh produce.
So what do we do about it? Greener Growth teaches everyone we speak with to ‘grow their own’. Even people without gardens or green spaces can grow in pots, windowsills and window boxes. The smallest gardens can produce an abundance of fresh food if you know how to grow! If your school would benefit from Greener Growth’s help, get in touch via our contact page
