Growit is a fantastic way of engaging children in the wonders of horticulture. Expert guidance helps teachers and their pupils gain the confidence to employ all of the skills and techniques required to establish and run a fully-fledged edible garden.
Schools do not even need a large and ready plot of available land to take part in growit. Indeed, many of the Open Futures schools have exploited some truly unexpected places to create their garden, all of which are now flourishing and providing a steady stream of food for the kitchen. The techniques employed can be adapted to growing in a traditional style allotment, raised beds, classroom patios or even simply containers.
