Encouraging healthy eating

Hands-on learning about plants, nutrition and how to grow food can give children a lifelong appreciation of healthy living. For adults, too, growing food helps to build an understanding of where the food we eat comes from and why fresh, home-grown salads, vegetables and fruits are good for you.

You don’t need an allotment or even a large garden to grow your own food – a small vegetable patch or a few containers on a patio can be a great place to start. Plant-based educators can offer inspiration and practical advice to help people plant and grow a successful vegetable garden.
