GIY - What's in Store for February?

With what always feels like the longest month of the year finally coming to an end it's time to look forward to Spring and all that this amazing season has to offer. As we find ourselves, once again, staying indoors there is no better time to start some indoor sowing or get the garden prepared for the March growing season.

At GIY we want to help you stay active and stay positive during this time so here are some of the goings-on at GIY for the month of Feb - and you can sign up for our regular newsletters here.

The #BigGrow launch is here and this year it's extra special - this year marks our 10 year anniversary working with the amazing Innocent Drinks Ireland & innocent to help kids in Ireland and the UK to start growing their own food. 

Even though schools are closed, we are continuing to call on teachers to sign up for free food growing classroom kits to welcome pupils back when classrooms open again.

Today kicks off the tenth year of The Big Grow, an initiative that began to get kids growing their own veg at school, helping thousands of schools to get free growing resources.

Schools across Ireland are invited to apply for a food growing kit, which comes with five packs of different seeds and enough compost, growing cups, instructions, and fun lesson plans for the entire class.

Although schools are closed at the moment, the kits will be sent once everyone's back in class just in time to start the growing season. The growing cups are easy for kids to take home and do the activities in their kitchen too. Apply Now
