School Kids Grow Their Own Curry!
I am pleased to announce that for the second year the British Curry Club are helping primary school students to grow their own curry ingredients.
Selected schools have already received packets of seeds supplied by Sutton Seeds. The hope is that the chosen schools will form gardening clubs and post news of their crops on their respective websites or social media pages.
As a further incentive, there is a competition encouraging the children to submit drawings of their school garden or write about their experiences in their gardening club. Three schools will be chosen to receive £200 worth of primary school books supplied by Sweet Cherry Publishing, an independent children’s book publisher from Leicester.
In addition one child from each of the winning schools will receive £25 worth of books.
As well as engaging the children in gardening activities, it is hoped that the scheme will encourage classroom debate around global food topics, a subject area encouraged by the national curriculum.
East End Spices and Chaat! Magazine are the other partners in the scheme.
