To deliver 1,000 gardening sessions in schools, as part of our mission for every child to learn about food and enjoy the natural world.

At School Food Matters, we will never let go of our ambition to deliver 1,000 school gardening sessions. We’re ambitious but also realistic, so how about we start with 100? That way, we can reach our new target in time for autumn planting and all you lovely supporters will be able to celebrate with us a little sooner 😀.
We want every child in every school to learn about food and enjoy the natural world. And visitors to our garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show agreed, making the School Food Matters Garden the People’s Choice 2023!
Heartened by the public response to our Chelsea garden, and the joy of seeing it relocated to Alec Reed Academy in London and The Beacon Primary in Liverpool, we’re now eager to translate this incredible support into outdoor learning opportunities for more children.
Please help us achieve our goal of delivering 100 gardening sessions in schools across the country by donating to our Crowdfunder and sharing it with family, friends and neighbours.
We want children to know that food starts in the soil, not in the supermarket. That’s why we want to help more schools to establish gardens, grow their own veg and plant forage for pollinators, connecting children to the natural world.
This is what children have learned during our gardening sessions:
