Providing information on organic food and farming in Wales
Information for schools
School gardensWhy not grow vegetables, herbs and fruit in school, using organic principles? It is an excellent way to learn how plants grow and where food comes from. You can eat the results, too.
Materials for schoolsYou can download our new schools leaflet here: Get growing in schools and colleges
Welsh version: Dechrau tyfu mewn ysgolion a cholegau
All the information you need to start an organic garden is available here: Garden Organic for Schools.
We have worked with Garden Organic to help schools engage with their local communities, and they have produced a bilingual leaflet for people interested in volunteering on their local school garden:
