Growing for the Future – October 21 October 2021

Visit the Growing for the Future resource on and get ideas to manage your garden.

The days are now becoming much shorter and the weather much cooler. Now is the time to think of all those gardening plans for next year. 

CCEA has developed a web resource, in partnership with Tourism NI, to encourage children to grow fruit and vegetables, explore where food comes from and to promote healthy eating.  

Teachers can access curriculum–linked resource sheets for Key Stages 1 and 2 divided into the calendar year, with monthly overviews and guidance to growing the fruits and vegetables that are in season.  These resources can support many of the Ten Topics of the Eco–Schools Green Flag journey, such as Biodiversity, Energy and Healthy Living. 

Let us know how you get on with any of these activities by sharing on CCEA’s social media or email Melanie Mulligan, Education Manager on
