Schools Liaison

Schools Liaison:
The Oxfordshire Gardens Trust is seeking to help the county's primary schools to develop their grounds, so that the children can experience the enjoyment of eating fruit and vegetables actually grown by themselves.
  • This initiative reflects a growing concern for children's health, as well as the importance of helping them to understand the concerns that surround the food they eat, methods of food production and sustainable land management.

    The Trust is encouraging and helping teachers and children to make vegetable gardens and use them as outdoor classrooms, relevant to learning across the primary school curriculum, by providing up-to-date information on funding and resources for school gardens.
