Growing in Schools

Growing in Schools was an online event for home-educators, teachers, school staff, and anyone who thinks kids should get to learn how to grow veggies, and would like to help make this possible in your community – here are the recordings, for those who missed the live session!

Be inspired by two Lincolnshire schools showing us how it’s done with excellent food growing & eating projects, and the chance to ask questions from people in the thick of it!

This event is part of an online series for Incredible Edible in Lincolnshire – a community of Lincolnshire people using food to galvanise our local communities, and share the journey towards a fair and sustainable food system. Everyone is welcome – if you eat, you’re in!
