Edible Gardens is one of our newest education initiatives which lets young people take the lead in their local area.
In schools across Devon, we are helping students to create positive change by giving them the tools to plan, plant and protect their very own edible gardens in partnership with their local community.
Children love seeing the fruits (and nuts) of their labour. Our programme helps them work towards this by developing a range of important skills whilst fostering a key ethos of care, creativity and community spirit.
Here are just some of the things our programme has to offer:
Edible Gardens provides a fun and inspiring learning framework which builds on core cognitive, social & emotional and linguistic skills, whilst integrating the 5 ways to wellbeing.
Edible Gardens are for everyone. That’s why we’ve tried to ensure that our programme is as inclusive as possible. It can be tailored to the needs of all learners and adapted to all age ranges, from nursery children to GCSE Geographers. We also welcome community and home education groups to take part in the project.
