The Roots and Shoots Programme
The Roots and Shoots Programme provides 10 schools each year with the opportunity to take part in a full horticultural programme, throughout the gardening season.
Through practical sessions , children increase their knowledge around healthy eating and the importance of having an active lifestyle, where they develop their own gardening skills to use at school and home. For many, this is the first time they have done any gardening and for some, it is eye-opening to discover where vegetables come from!
