Schools get Big Lottery chance to “Grow to Eat Well”

The environmental charity Portsmouth Friends of the Earth Association [PFOEA] has been awarded a Main Grant from Local Food, a new funding programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund for a £1/4 million project in Portsmouth school grounds.

The project, to be known as “Grow to eat well in Portsmouth Schools” [GTEW], will provide expertise, labour and materials to enable school communities to develop vegetable gardens in their grounds. This will provide children, parents and other volunteers from school communities with opportunities to grow and eat fresh local food, compost school waste and train in horticultural skills.
