Following the success of the pilot project, funding from Public Health is now enabling the Growing Healthy Project to be rolled out across County Durham! Through Growing Healthy, OASES will support 20 schools for a full school year to create, use and maintain a school growing space. This will provide opportunities for children to learn about healthy food, be physically active and enjoy being outdoors.
We have recruited 10 schools to take part in the project in 2015/16. However, if your school would like to take part in the project in the academic year 2016/17 please contact OASES.
A short film was produced to showcase the programme. Watch it here. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8PhqVj30f4 )
If you would like to develop growing within your school please contact OASES.
