Growathon Under Starter’s Orders

New initiative aims to get young Londoners growing

A new initiative has been launched by the Food Growing Schools: London partnership with the aim of encouraging 10,000 London students to grow their own food this year. The new Growathon website enables schools, students and growing organisations to share their food-growing activities on the Growathon Carrot Totaliser and watch as the numbers increase.

From classroom windowsill growers to urban school farms, every school in London is being encouraged to get involved. Activities such as workshops, assemblies, class projects and school farm visits will be included, and schools will be able to advertise public growing events on the website and invite other young people to come along.
