Take part in Get Your Grown-ups Growing 2014 and your school could win a Hartley Botanic Greenhouse worth £4,000!
What is GYGG?
We've teamed up with TV gardener, David Domoney to launch Get Your Grown-ups Growing (GYGG) 2014. We are encouraging schools across the UK to host a GYGG event this October where they invite adults from the local community to help out in the school garden.
Events can be a few hours, a whole day, a week, an evening – whatever you want. Your event can also be whatever you choose. You may decide to enlist adults to help build raised beds, sow seeds, plant bulbs or even take part in fundraising events, gardening games or fruit and vegetable tasting. Have a look at some of our activity ideas for inspiration.
How to take part
We have 3,000 free GYGG packs to give away this year which include seeds (kindly donated by Kings Seeds), stickers and a poster to promote your chosen event. Please note: packs will be sent out at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.
Apply for your GYGG pack and enter the competition now!
Once all the GYGG events have taken place, we will ask schools about their event. We will then choose one lucky school to win a fantastic Hartley Botanic Greenhouse worth £4,000! Details on how to enter the greenhouse competition will be sent out in November 2014.
