Wildlife Gardening at School

Posted: Monday 16th May 2016 by OutdoorLearning

We do a lot of work here at the Trust to encourage young people to go outside and get closer to nature.

Our schools wildlife gardening competition is one example of this. It’s free to enter and open to all schools in Surrey.

We want children to go out into their school grounds this summer, get their hands dirty and think about what their school can do for wildlife.

The best school gardens will win prizes – the winner will be awarded a £50 voucher kindly donated by Squires Garden Centres.

We know that children who engage with nature are happier and healthier and more creative and it’s always encouraging to see how many other charities and groups have children and outdoor learning at heart.

Our wildlife gardening competition was also featured on a website with lots of other great projects aimed at getting children outside
