I Can Grow

Small changes to make a big difference

Welcome to I Can Grow!

This project is a chance for young people to discover and explore the benefits of gardening, not only to them, but also to their local community and the wider world.

I Can Grow is designed to empower young people, allowing them to create a campaign, using plants, to shout about the environmental and social issues they believe in.

How it works...

First you need to sign up for a free inspiration pack (register below) which will contain a project guide and great resources to get your class or group thinking about and eventually sharing their campaign.

Please note: We have run out of resource packs for 'Ages 11 and under and SEN'. You can still apply for resource packs for 'Ages 12 and over' via the form below, or download our digital resources, including a project guide, event poster and speech bubble, to take part.

This project is designed to be led by your young people as much as possible so, using the resources, encourage them to think how they could use plants to solve a problem or support a cause that means something to them.

They will be asked to try and link their cause to one or more of the following themes. click the images to find out more about each specific theme.

Make some noise!

Once your class or group has chosen their theme and specific cause or issue, they will need to get to work and show why it’s important to grow plants for that reason.

Using our help and resources they will:

  • create a campaign - this will actively inspire others to get involved and share the ways that plants can play an important role in solving or supporting their chosen cause

Let's grow!

If you'd like to help inspire your class or group to grow, register as a member of the Campaign for School Gardening and then sign up for a free inspiration pack containing a project guide, seeds, stickers and more! Packs are limited so sign up before they all go...
