The RHS Campaign for School Gardening is an initiative designed to support all schools through the development of their own garden within the school grounds and encourage children to enjoy actively using the garden.

It is free for schools to register to the Campaign upon which they will receive a free starter pack. Schools also have access to a huge host of useful resources, curriculum links, gardening advice from our Regional Advisors and information on how to find funding.

School Gardening Awards

To encourage schools to develop and maintain their garden areas, the School Gardening Awards is a step-by-step reward scheme which takes pupils through each stage of gardening from planning and designing to more advanced skills such as taking cuttings, making raised bed kits and constructing compost bins. Upon completion of each level, the school is awarded a prize including seeds, books and vouchers.

School Gardening Training Courses

The Campaign offers an extensive programme of teacher training courses designed to:

  • enthuse and support teachers in developing and using gardens in schools
  • support progression through the School Gardening Awards
  • encourage and advise teaching of the National Curriculum both inside and outside the classroom using, plants, gardens, school grounds and environmental areas
  • improve knowledge and understanding of plants and gardening
