These colourful Swiss Chard seedlings were spotted today on the windowsill of Tomnacross Nursery - just one of the varieties of seeds they received as part of the RoWAN FREE SEED offer.
RoWAN, Dingwall Academy and RHET (Royal Highland Education Trust) are pleased at announce the launch of the "Growing Hub - Growing Award" which aims to:
- Provide an informal, progressive approach for pupils to gain skills and knowledge through growing fruit, vegetables and flowers
- Assist school staff to gain confidence in supporting pupils to grow more
- Recognise pupils' horticultural achievements with an Award that is both easy to deliver and assess
Sowing and caring for seeds are examples of tasks that can count towards the newly launched "Growing Award".
If you would like more information on this Award, which is being piloted over the next 12 months please contact RoWAN at any time. We are more than happy to visit you and your pupils to help get you growing! We'd love to hear from you if you intend to do the "Growing Award" so we can provide you with support via email.
Feel free to send us photos of your growing projects and tops tips for how to grow over the school holidays!
