Grow to School – helping schools deliver education outdoors.

We deliver curriculum led outdoor learning and food growing projects in your school grounds.

Our mission is to:

  • Put children in touch with where their food comes from through growing, cooking and eating it
  • Help children learn about and care for the natural environment
  • To support schools to take the curriculum outside the classroom and create meaningful learning experiences
  • Help schools to make the most of their outside space

92% of teachers reported that being outdoors led to a positive impact on engaging pupils with learning (Natural Connections, 2016)

Growing communities

I have been most impressed by the activities at Grow after school club.  The children have grown, prepared and consumed their own seasonal food.
