Growathon - Ready. Set. Grow!

Join 50,000 young London growers for the biggest school food growing challenge of the year. Feed your city: grow one thing, and tell a friend today! Pass it on.

The challenge is on. How many students are growing in your school? Add your food growing activities and students to the Growathon Totaliser – and watch the numbers of young people involved grow!

  • Attend or organise a food growing event
  • Take part in a one-off food growing lesson, workshop or assembly
  • Join in with regular food growing activities
