Golden Britain in Bloom

To launch the 2014 RHS Britain in Bloom campaign and to celebrate Bloom’s golden anniversary, the RHS is encouraging community groups across the UK to plant golden pollinator-friendly flowers in public spaces this year.

Free ‘Growing for Gold’ seed packs are available on a first-come, first-served basis to all groups registered with one of these campaigns:

Bloom (all Bloom groups can apply for seeds - regional and national)
It’s Your Neighbourhood
RHS Affiliated Societies
RHS Campaign for School Gardening

If you are registered with any of the above groups you can apply for seeds via the RHS

The Growing Schools website has been designed to support teachers and practitioners in using the "outdoor classroom" as a resource across the curriculum for pupils of all ages. 

Register to get the excellent and informative enewsletter, look for Places to Visit using the interactive map, check out supporting organisations in your area or look through the extensive and developing range of teaching resources.

The Natural Connections Demonstration Project funded by DEFRA, Natural England and English Heritage, and recently contracted to Plymouth University, is one of the largest outdoor learning projects in the UK. This highly innovative 3 year Project (2012-2015), working in more than 200 schools across the South West of England, aims to significantly increase the number of school aged children experiencing the full range of benefits that come from learning in natural environments.
