School Food Matters & Brogdale Collections

School Food Matters & Brogdale Collections

Brogdale Collections have teamed up with School Food Matters a London based charity for a fun and education school kids event. Brogdale are always keen to help children discover more about our environment, food and more by learning all about our fruit trees.

Brogdale Collections donated apple trees to 6 schools to support and help them grow their very own fruit, which will help the children gain a fantastic understanding about where fruit comes from, how it grows, pollination and more.

Our expert guide Mike and education officer Kathryn spent the day at Borough Market teaching children about how an apple tree changes during the seasons and showing them how to plant and care for their new trees. Each tree was taken from Grow – Brogdale’s plant centre to plant & nurture in their own school grounds.

As you can see it was a great fun & educational day out for all involved. Find out more about our school education days HERE
