Squire’s encourage local school children to grow their own

Children at two schools in Surrey have been learning to grow their own thanks to a vegetable planter pack from Squire’s Garden Centres worth over £230!

Danetree Primary School in Ewell and Bisley Primary School in Woking both won the prize after people nominated their favourite school on Squire’s Facebook page, then two winning schools were drawn at random.

Squire’s delivered the planter pack to each school, which contains a stand up metal raised planter, five bags of peat-free compost and a lovely selection of vegetable plants.

Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented; “We are absolutely delighted to give this prize to both Danetree and Bisley Primary Schools. Children always love to get their hands dirty, and growing vegetables is a fun way to teach them where food comes from. It may even encourage some of the children to try different vegetables and eat their five a day!”
