The British Leafy Salads Association is running a Grow Your Own Salad initiative for primary school children aged 7 to 11. The initiative is designed to help children develop first-hand knowledge of where their food comes from in their own classrooms.
200 free Grow Your Own Salad Kits have already been allocated for the 2012 autumn term. Registrations to order your free kits for 2013 are now open. Kits are limited to 3 per school. Free curriculum based teaching resources are available, including 8 pupil friendly worksheets, salad growing instructions and an interactive whiteboard activity.
