Green City Action has won Lottery funding for its “School for Vegetables” project.

The project aims to provide training and support for people wanting to grow their own food. It plans to engage with local schools to use the School for Vegetables site, at Grimesthorpe Allotments, as a learning resource and outdoor classroom. It will also assist schools create their own vegetable gardens.

A Project Worker will work with the schools and link the growing of vegetables with the national curriculum. Local volunteers, residents and community organisations can also expect to learn new skills in horticulture. Rob Bullock, project worker and local resident said,

“The School for Vegetables Project will provide a fantastic opportunity for local people and children to learn about growing fruit and vegetables and developing healthy lifestyles”

Another of Green City Action’s projects – the garden share scheme – aims to match up potential committed, enthusiastic growers with local householders who want to see their gardens being used more productively.
