Our Allotment

The RHS Campaign for School Gardening inspires and supports schools to provide children with gardening opportunities to enhance their skills and boost their development.

Our work with schools has shown that the direct benefits of gardening for children are wide ranging:

Improves physical and mental well-being
Builds life skills such as confidence, teamwork and communication
Enhances literacy, numeracy and oracy skills
Enriches the entire curriculum from science, maths and geography, to art, design and languages
Encourages a better and healthier lifestyle
Teaches about the environment and sustainability
Helps young people engage with their surroundings better and develop a sense of responsibility
