The Schools campaign aims to inspire young children and their families to discover the benefits of growing plants by helping 100 schools across the UK embrace gardening every year.
Stewart Garden products, including propagators, seed trays, plant pots, troughs and watering cans will be donated as part of the Stewart Garden Schools Growing Kit. Promotional materials for participating schools and garden centres will also be produced.
Children will receive a booklet produced by Pippa Greenwood, who is also providing three varieties of easy grow vegetables seeds.
Brother which supplies garden label equipment is supporting the scheme. It has supplied a GL100 garden labeller to each of the 100 schools involved in the project.
The most successful school will receive £2,000 to be spent at their Stewart Garden Schools garden centre. The second and third placed schools will receive £1,500 and £750 respectively, also for purchases at their nominating garden centre.
