Questionnaires to enter the prize draw will be sent to participating schools in January.

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 and groups across the UK to host a GYGG event this Autumn term, inviting adults from the local community to help out in the 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

Click 'Promote your event' on the left of this page to download useful resource including invitations, flyers, posters and info on contacting the local press.

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.

The prize

Once all the GYGG events have taken place, we will ask participants about their event. We will then choose one lucky school or group to win a fantastic Hartley Botanic Greenhouse worth £4,000!
