Support for Schools

In recent years, Food4Macc has helped 12 local schools provide food growing learning facilities, by purchasing equipment and providing the labour to construct raised beds.

The Royal Horticultural Society offers lots of useful information about starting a school garden here.

Here are some of the schools we have helped.
In general the success of these projects depends on the enthusiasm and support of teachers and/or parents.
