Since meeting the Eastfeast team at the Growing Schools Annual Conference Little Growers are working with them to partner their school projects with our their own projects. East Feast is a Local Food funded initiative that offers artist-teacher partnerships that enable the children to express their thoughts and experiences in a range of art forms through the growing cycle of seasons. Eastfeast already has school projects across East Anglia and the Little Growers project would supplement their existing growing initiatives, creating a stronger and highly productive joint project as a result of the synergy. Little Growers has recently established a pilot school to combine the Eastfeast project with its own scheme. This is proving extremely successful with great results due to the combining of the two initiatives.
The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture. Led by the Soil Association, the Food for Life Partnership brings together the practical expertise of the Focus on Food Campaign, Garden Organic and the Health Education Trust.
The RHS Campaign for School Gardening aims to encourage and support schools to develop and actively use a school garden. As part of their campaign they provide teachers with resources through their website and an extensive programme of CPD days. The scheme is free for schools and we encourage all our Little Growers schools to register for additional horticultural support and information.
