Community Garden Project at Luton Primary School

Earlier this year, Surrey Street Primary School launched the Growing Together community project, where pupils, parents and teachers work together to create a medley of different fruits and vegetables. The project is designed to help give children a greater understanding of where their food comes from.

The garden project is in development in a grassy area at the front of the school and is hoping to turn the area into seven different garden groups; one for each school year group. Throughout the course of the year, the children will take part in a number of gardening and cooking projects in order to give them a better understanding of the importance of where their food is grown and how it grows.
The Growing Together project is also known as the Surrey Street Family Growing Club, which meets every Friday at 2pm to tend to the gardens and get children and parents spending time together outdoors. As the campaign this year has been a resounding success, the school has plans to continue it for new families this September and in April next year, looking at different seasonal fruits and vegetables.
