Welcome to Growing Devon Schools
As a Partnership, we recognise that increasing numbers of schools, and teachers within Devon’s schools, would like to start growing projects but lack the skills, knowledge and confidence to do so. By linking providers (including zoos, gardens, community groups, growers etc.) with their local schools, we aim to provide information about those skills and knowledge and inspire confidence.
Our mission statement:
The partnership exists to support teachers in the development and delivery of outdoor experiential curriculum that builds skills, environmental awareness, a lifelong healthy relationship with food and an understanding of its production and preparation.
