Bespoke Training

Aimed at helping your school get started, Food Growing Schools: London workshops for school staff and local volunteers led by Garden Organic are packed full of simple and achievable growing tips, whatever the size of your growing space – from container growing, through to establishing a new school garden. Aimed at helping you to integrate food growing into your primary and secondary curriculum activities, growing food can involve the whole school across a myriad of subjects (from Science, to English, Maths, Design and Technology and more).

FGSL offers a range of school food growing workshop activities, such as:

  • Growing in Containers
  • Seeds and Seed Sowing
  • Food Growing in the Curriculum
  • Gardening for Wildlife
  • Practical gardening activity (e.g. creating raised bed, compost bin, planting an orchard)
  • Business Enterprise in Schools

If you would like a school food growing workshop in your area get in touch. We are also looking for new school venues to hold regular growing events in too.

Contact your FGSL Engagement Officer to arrange a school workshop in your London borough.
