Sprouts

Welcome to Sprouts!

The Sprouts Project is an intiative created by Wandsworth Borough Council, FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) and New Covent Garden Market.

The aim of the project is to give inner city school children the opportunity to learn first hand about fruit and vegetables, how they are grown and how it gets to their plates at school and at home.

The project comprises of three elements:

  1. A visit to New Covent Garden Market
  2. A visit to a working farm
  3. The growing of a sustainable garden

The Competition

Over the course of the project year the participating schools are competing with each other to win top prize in one of the three categories. These are:

  1. Most Improved Garden - prize for the school garden which has improved the most throughout the project year.
  2. Best Display - the school that puts on the best display at the Celebration Event in July.
  3. Best Taste - the class that prepares the 'best' dish as judged by our panel at the July Celebration Event.
