Food gardens

Food gardens are a great way of learning about healthy eating, food security, organic gardening, chemical and water use, packaging, recycling, composting, seasonal eating and the environmental impacts of food choices.

We have curriculum planning, activities and resources to help your students learn about food gardens and their many benefits. We also have examples of what other schools have done to inspire you!
