Urban Schools – Get More from your Growing Space
25th March 2015
Fulham Primary School, SW6 1JU

Do you work in urban schools where there is no allotment-style garden plot?

Your garden may be on a roof, in the playground or another urban space. You may be growing more in pots and containers than in the open ground. This course will provide lots of creative tips and practical techniques to make the most of your space and maximise your growing potential, for example, providing containers full of healthy fruits for foraging. Finally the day will cover the vital importance of trees and green corridors in cities, enabling you to explain the benefits of urban planting to your pupils.
