Gardening is a fun and inclusive activity that people of all ages can enjoy. As well as being something different for the children to experience, it can also be beneficial for their well-being and education. Together with Suttons, an online retailer and gardening expert, we take a look at the benefits of gardening for children and ways to encourage their participation.
Garden centre Perrywood sponsored a £750 prize to find the healthiest packed lunch in Essex. The Healthy Packed Lunch Plot Competition was open to all primary and special schools in Essex. It encouraged pupils to design a kitchen garden plot and create a recipe for a healthy packed lunch using its produce.
