The innocent big grow is a project designed to encourage children in the UK and Ireland to grow their own food in primary schools and at home. We give away kits containing (almost) everything you need to grow your own tasty vegetables together with your classmates or family.
We know that even a small food growing experience can have a BIG impact. And that’s what the innocent big grow does. It has a big impact on children by teaching them something we call Food Empathy.
Food Empathy is a deeper connection and understanding of food that comes through the power of food growing. Food Growers eat more locally and more seasonally. They eat more portions of fruit and vegetables every day and are more physically active. Food growing also does wonders for self-esteem and confidence.
Registrations for school kits are now closed but you can find great resources and details of how to sign up for next year at www.innocentbiggrow.com.
