Getting kids growing with Food for Life & Pukka Herbs

Food for Life has teamed up with Pukka Herbs for a second year and 40 lucky nurseries and schools have received a raised herb planter, complete with seeds, compost and a set of resources designed to kick-start their herb growing journey, alongside a years subscription to the Food for Life School Awards programme.

The project forms part of the ‘Know Your Organic Roots’ campaign which Pukka have launched with the Soil Association in a joint commitment to 1% for the Planet, a global network of businesses and not-for-profits, working together for a happier, healthier planet.

The herb planters will be donated to the recipients in time for Food for Life’s Grandparent Gardening Week (1 - 5 April), a nation-wide programme of events that sees schools and nurseries working with grandparents, family members and local volunteers to rejuvenate growing spaces in time for spring. Combining the two initiatives will create intergenerational links between the children and older relatives, providing opportunities for the children to discover their own roots through growing with their grandparents.
