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.

The Wakeham Trust


Groups of individuals, small community and voluntary groups within the UK that want to improve their communities can apply for funding through the Wakeham Trust.
The Trust does not favour any particular areas of activity but projects involving community service by young people, and projects set up by those who are socially excluded feature on the list of what has been supported in the past.

The Trust normally gives grants to projects where an initial £75 to £750 can make a real difference to getting the project up and running.

Application rounds / deadlines: This scheme operates a rolling application process, allowing you to apply at any time.
