Food For Thought School Project

East Ayrshire, Kilmarnock

Our project is called Food For Thought and it is a grow your own project for schools in disadvantaged areas in East Ayrshire. We are working with 2 classes within each of the 7 primary schools involved in the project. We’d like to be able to create at least 2 raised beds for each school which would mean using around 28 scaffold planks. The raised beds would be used both for growing crops the children would plant and harvest, cook and eat and for growing plants for pollinators. Work outside would link with other work completed in the classroom promoting healthy food choices and an awareness of the role played by pollinators in food production. The schools are registered with the RHS Campaign for the School Gardening.
