Roots and Shoots Programme

15th May 2016

Led by The Alnwick Garden and supported by public health professionals from Northumbria Health Care trust, the Roots and Shoots programme aims to offer children an opportunity to learn how to grow, tend and harvest food.

The children have now been on two visits to Alnwick Garden. During the visits, the children have learnt about growing and healthy eating, and gained support on how to plan their school based growing area. They are now using their knowledge and skills in our lovely school garden with the help of Mr Goodfellow.
