Abstract

This report presents a detailed picture of the challenges and opportunities for food growing as an educational activity, with a focus on local Southwark and Royal Greenwich schools from research surveys, focus groups and interviews. Survey information comprises an adjusted total of 80 schools, 47 of which came from the two South London target boroughs. The maintenance and sustenance of growing food requires consideration of local challenges and of wider national responsibilities when thinking about the business case for growing food in schools.
