Secret Seed Society supports the Harvest-ometer Challenge

   

DSCF3962

Ask your school to take part…

Capital Growth is challenging schools to grow and measure as much as they can using our Harvest-ometer, a simple online tool designed to track how much food your school grows in kilograms and pounds (£).

We will support schools throughout the year with growing tips, training, competitions and more. At the end of the competitions, in July 2016, prizes will be awarded for:

  • Most food grown per square meter
  • Biggest range of produce
  • Growing School Hero
  • Competition Prizes
  • Three winning schools will receive a place at our School Marketplace at City Hall and one of the prizes below:
  • A mini orchard and apple press
  • Visit from a professional beekeeper
  • A chicken coop, a rescued chicken and 20% discount on chicken care training
  • All schools taking part will receive a Growing Certificate highlighting how many pupils were involved and how many kilograms of food were harvested.
  • To enter the competition:
