Our assemblies are now fully booked!

Thanks for your interest. Please see other support and resources available to help you get started on your food-growing journey!

Our School Survey has shown that lots of schools are after some support through training, resources and activities to get going with their growing.

So we’ve produced a fun, engaging and informative assembly that our expert team have been delivering across London at no cost to schools.

So far, over 2,000 pupils have had the opportunity to learn from the assembly – from food growing trivia and why we should grow our own food, to how you can grow your own business, sell produce at markets and build a career using the skills you’ll learn.

The result?

Pupils are learning new things and teachers are benefitting from larger groups and different aged children being involved at one time.

North Ealing Primary learnt that they can successfully grow produce on their fully concreted grounds. You don’t need a designated space, you can use window sill planters and create vertical gardens or even grow on the roof! See what John Ruskin School in Southwark have done.

St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School wanted an assembly to spark ideas to use their Supergrounds more and get each year group using their designated plot and polytunnel.

*Assemblies will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
