Growing at School
Learning to grow at school is fast becoming one of the most popular and accessible outdoor learning projects within education. Here at Forest Schools Birmingham we are working with, in excess, of 20 schools in the region enabling children and staff to become proficient growers of delicious organic produce.
Our small team here at Forest Schools Birmingham have helped many schools over the years to develop their outdoor learning areas in this holistic way. One of our passions is reconnecting schools and families with growing their own food. There is growing interest in healthy eating, organics, sustainability, locality and the pure satisfaction of growing your own. The process can be an incredible learning experience for everyone involved.
We are currently working with an experienced gardener and award winning allotment holder who inspires people with her passion and skill for growing. All participants go on a journey of discovery together and learn as much from their failures as their successes; discovery, investigation and hands on learning is actively encouraged. All aspects of growing are explored for a truly plot to plate experience; design, construction, soils, composts, wormeries, sowing, planting, watering, feeding, pests and diseases, seasonality and finally delicious recipies helping to engage learners.
We can offer support designed to suit your individual requirements, whether you are a beginner or already established; in the form of consultation, advice, one- offs or complete programmes... just give us a call!
