Schools: Learn to grow crops and pick up your FREE growing kit!

We are excited to invite teachers, other school staff and volunteers to a growing training session taking place on Tuesday 5 February 2019 at the West Heath Community Centre.

Learn more about Move More Eat Well and get hands-on growing experience and plenty of advice to kick start your planting projects for Spring.

The training will run between 1-3pm at West Heath Community Centre, Hampstead House, Condover Road, West Heath, Birmingham B31 3QY.

If you or others are interested in attending please email MMEW@gardenorganic.org.uk to book a place.

The first 15 schools to register can qualify to collect a fully funded growing kit on the day. The kit contains:

  • a potting tray,
  • five pairs of primary aged children’s gardening gloves,
  • a watering can,
  • two potato growing sacks
  • assorted vegetable seeds.

Please see terms and conditions below for details on how to qualify. Please note, we can also deliver the free kits to any school which qualifies. Garden Organic is a partner in the Move More Eat Well project which is fully funded by Birmingham City Council, working across Longbridge, Northfield, Cofton and Rubery.

*Terms and Conditions: The growing kit offer is open to schools in the Longbridge, Northfield, Cofton, Rubery and West Heath areas of Birmingham only. Anyone else working with schools in the area can attend the training, but will not qualify to receive a growing kit. In order to qualify you must be one of the first fifteen schools to register for the training session on 5 February 2019 and also sign our Schools Agreement, in which you agree to receive at least three fully-funded Move More Eat Well activities (such as a Healthy Eating Assembly; cooking training for school staff and a composting workshop for example) as well as completing simple evaluation forms at the start and end of your involvement in the project. Only one growing kit per school will be supplied. In order to apply, participants must register via email to mmew@gardenorganic.org.uk The names of the successful schools will be available on request and may also be publicised in relevant context on Garden Organic webpages or digital channels.
