Cultivation Street is now 7 years into its campaign to help people grow and garden together. Supporting thousands of adults with community gardening and children’s school gardens, this ever-growing campaign continues to transform people’s lives through the positive power of plants. As part of that campaign, we also have the Garden Centre Ambassador Scheme where we connect Garden Centre professionals with schools and Communities. We encourage these ambassadors to offer friendly advice to beginner gardeners and help schools and children to learn about gardening and the many health benefits of associating with plants and nature.
In addition to this support, we also encourage schools to enter our School Garden competition. Please read on to find out how your school can get involved!
