Growing Schools

Growing Schools logoBGEN is proud to support the work of Growing Schools.

Growing Schools aims to give all children the opportunity to connect with the living environment, whether it is an inner-city window box or a vast country estate, a school veg plot or a natural woodland. Interacting with living plants and animals provides a very rich, hands-on learning experience in which both formal and informal education can flourish.

Growing Schools focuses on three areas that are accessible to all, at some level, as a context for learning:

  • Food and farming, including the managed countryside
  • Gardens, gardening and green spaces
  • Wildlife and the natural environment
