About Us

We are the RHS Campaign for School Gardening

Our mission is to give children and young people, from two to 18 years old*, opportunities to grow and connect with nature. We do this by supporting school staff, home educators and youth group leaders with training, resources and advice, so they can encourage young people to explore the outdoors and learn how to care for plants and our planet.
