Waitrose Grow and Sell

On 19 April Mr Navarro, Manager of Waitrose in Weybridge, came to the school to present vegetable seeds as part of the Waitrose Grow and Sell scheme for schools.

This is the second year of the scheme which aims to inspire 7-11 year olds to grow their own produce during the summer months, learn where food comes from, and develop entrepreneurial skills.

Grow and Sell kits are given to schools to help get their school vegetable patches up and running. The kit, supplied by family business, Seed Pantry, contains vegetable seeds, equipment, step-by-step growing instructions and badges for children to designate roles for both the growing and selling elements of the scheme.  A new feature of the kit is the inclusion of wild flower seeds, which will help boost the number of bees, butterflies and other pollinators in school hedgerows.

The school has already started growing fruit and vegetables which you can see below.
