Schools Meal in a Barrow

Schools' Meal in a Barrow

Schools' Meal in a Barrow

Our celebrations of the Gardeners' World anniversary is as much about looking forward to the next 50 years as it is about looking back over the past. And as such, this year we were proud to welcome Schools into our fantastic Meal in a Barrow competition!

Encouraging growing in schools, this competition demands creative thinking, inspiration and what's more - getting out into the garden! School children were tasked to plant up a wheelbarrow with all the home-grown ingredients required to rustle up a fresh and tasty summer recipe. In 2016 we saw Meals in a Barrow varying from ratatouille ingredients to veggie curry.
