Climate Change, Grow your own, Seeds

Finding ways to engage children in sustainability is a constant challenge but this looks like a brilliant idea to encourage kids to understand that bread can be grown from seed to sandwich.

On Monday 23 January, Real Bread Campaign ambassador and star of Channel 4’s The Fabulous Baker Brothers, Tom Herbert sows the Bake Your Lawn challenge for schools around Britain: grow your own loaf!

If you’re a teacher or work in a community youth group, read on for details of how to get hold of a handful of organic wheat and the free grassroots guide on how to grow it, mill it, bake it, eat it.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
