Fruit and Vegetables on the Farm and in your School Garden

Fruit and vegetables are a key part of our diet but many children do not eat enough of them.  One way of helping children to make the right food choices is to involve them in all stages of growing and food preparation.

This course will give teachers of all age groups the skills to:

  • Set up and maintain a productive fruit and vegetable growing area at school and plenty of ideas for ways to link it to the curriculum.   

  • Find out about suitable varieties of fruit to grow so that you have seasonal availability

  • Understand how to look after your fruit and vegetable plants once they are in the soil.

  • Find out more about the journeys of British fruits from tree to fruit bowl and vegetables from field to fork, so that you can share them with your pupils.
