Countryside Classroom - Connecting schools with food, farming and the natural environment

Growing Schools has been re-launched as Countryside Classroom, the largest ever partnership of organisations who are committed to helping children learn about food, farming and/or the natural environment.

It is the vision of Countryside Classroom that schools and teachers across the UK will embrace food, farming and the natural environment as essential components of a broad and balanced curriculum, incorporating them into day-to-day learning. As a result of this, every child will have the opportunity to learn about and experience these topics in diverse ways that are increasingly supported by experiences outside the classroom.

Growing Schools Gardens

Growing Schools has successfully developed two show case growing school gardens. The aim of these gardens is to show how learning can take place outside the classroom, within the school grounds. 

The gardens offer visitors inspiration for their own school grounds, but also be a realistic vision of what it possible on a limited budget.
