100 UK schools receive Stewart Garden kits

The Stewart Garden Schools Campaign with Pippa Greenwood 2014 took a big step forward this month as entrants received their campaign kits. Comprising a range of gardening products, the kits have enabled participating schools to start growing their own fruit and vegetables from scratch.

The kits, donated to 100 schools throughout the UK include such places as the Isle of Wight, Cumbria, Devon, Somerset, Kent and Stirling.

Inside every kit are three varieties of easy-grow vegetable seeds from Pippa Greenwood’s own range. Compost has been donated by participating garden centres and professional grower's specialist, J Arthur Bowers. Pupils have received a booklet produced by Stewart Garden. The kit also includes:

  • 10 scoops
  • 5 potting tray & shelves
  • 2 x 22cm premium seed trays
  • 10 x 22cm kitchen garden propagator sets
  • 50 plant pots
  • 5 x 70cm Corinthian troughs
  • 1 pack of eight x 5 litre watering cans
  • 1 x 68cm electric kitchen garden propagators

In total, 100 schools across the UK, from the Isle of Wight to Stirling, are taking part in The Stewart Garden Schools Campaign with Pippa Greenwood 2014. The aim of the competition, which was first launched in 2012, is to encourage pupils to get involved in grow your own. In 2013, 95 schools took part, with the winning prize going to Lough View Integrated Primary School in Belfast.

Also supporting the Stewart Garden Schools Campaign 2014 is the global electronics company, Brother, who has supplied its sophisticated GL200 garden label printer.

Stewart Garden is challenging participating schools to demonstrate creativity and inspiration in the use of their kits. Entries can be submitted through photographs, videos, scrapbooks or slideshows. The top 10 schools will receive a visit from the judges, whose feedback will be collated and analysed. The winner will be announced in September 2014.

The winning school will receive £1,100 to be spent at their local garden centre. Nine runners up will each receive £500, with £100 of each prize being donated by J Arthur Bowers. 

Pippa Greenwood is one of Britain’s most popular gardening columnists, a highly respected author and the presenter of several television and radio programmes. Pippa’s regular writing commitments include BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine and a monthly page in NFU Countryside Magazine. For eighteen years Pippa was the gardening columnist for The Mirror newspaper.
