Garden Organic is a partner in the Coutryside Classroom consortium. The project is designed to ensure that all school children have the opportunity to learn about and experience food, farming and the natural environment.
Garden Organic is a partner in this fantastic programme run by Laverstoke Park Education Centre. This programme is designed to aid cross curricular and cross phase partnerships with hands-on horticulturally based social enterprises.
Garden Organic is one of nine partners from nine European Union countries who make up the 'Life from Soil' project. The project is set up to support local sustainability, rural communities and vulnerable target groups through tailored, open-source and tested education processes. The partnership represent all geographic parts of European Union and various non-formal and formal educators active in agricultural, horticultural and environmental sectors with a wide range of target groups.
Garden Organic has been involved with the Food for Life programme since 2007. It is all about transforming food culture – making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm, reconnecting people with where their food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked, and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients. Working with thousands of schools, nurseries, hospitals and care homes, helping them build knowledge and skills through a ‘whole setting approach’. This engages pupils and parents, teachers and doctors, caterers and carers, and the wider community to create a powerful voice for long-term change.
Growing Health is a national project run by Garden Organic and Sustain to see how community food growing can be routinely used by the health and social care services as a way of promoting health and wellbeing.
