Get Growing garden leader packWelcome to the Get Growing, Get Cooking, Garden Leader Pack

To download the pack please scroll down this page.

The Get Growing Project, funded by the Local Food strand of the National Lottery, was created in 2011 to support schools in Stroud District, Gloucestershire, to grow, harvest, eat and sell their own food.

The aim of this pack is to provide everything that a novice garden club leader, be they a teacher or volunteer, will need to run a successful, safe & fun gardening club. However, it is also designed so that the more experienced leader and classroom teacher, as well as parent at home, can come to it for ideas for essions/lessons/gardening with children. It was also developed to be used in conjunction with our get Growing, Get Cooking Gardening Club Seasonal Calendar poster which provides an overview to the school gardening year and our website which has even more resources.

The pack is not the product of one person alone, but of a team, and I would like to acknowledge the invaluable support and input of colleagues, Julie Wickham, Emily Janke-Pearson and freelance illustrator, Claire Barker.

I hope you enjoy using this pack as much as we did developing and producing it.

Happy Gardening!

Tamsin Bent, Get Growing Project Officer
