Now recruiting schools for active travel, food growing & cooking activities!
Do you struggle setting up a food growing area at your school or creating an active travel to school plan? Would you like some support with active travel to school, food growing & cooking activities as part of the curriculum? If so, we can help and the best thing is that it’s free to schools in Longbridge, Northfield, Cofton and Rubery.
As part of the project, Garden Organic and Sustrans will be delivering free services and activities within schools in the area for the next two academic years up to the summer of 2019. The project is funded by Birmingham City Council as part of the Longbridge Area Action Plan. The project is a pioneering partnership of third sector organisations tackling childhood obesity and improving health and wellbeing and is co-ordinated by Northfield Ecocentre. Find out more about the activities below and sign up to ensure your place.
We are inviting interested schools to contact us before the end of term to sign up to the programme of activities that will benefit your pupils, teachers and parents 17/18 and 18/19 academic years. You can sign up to either or both programmes.
