Veg Champions 2017

 Who are we?

Our brand new project Veg Champions are a part of the Birmingham Big Seed Giveaway, an initiative set up by Forest Schools Birmingham CIC to provide schools across Birmingham and the West Midlands with free seeds and complimentary online learning tools. Our project “Veg Champions” is funded by the National Lottery Awards for All fund.

About Veg Champions

We are contacting schools across Birmingham to provide them with FREE vegetable seeds for their pupils. If you are interested in getting a free Veg Champions pack for your school or class but have not received an email from us please do not hesitate to get in touch either by our sign up form or email us directly at

About the Project

The project is split into three main stages. These are:

  1. Receive your free Veg Champions pack and organise a suitable day in the growing period (Feb-March 2017) to plant your seeds with your class or school.
  2. Monitor the growing progress of your seedlings and work through the provided online resources with your pupils as they grow.
  3. When your plants are ready to be transplanted, pupils can take thier seedlings home with them. Remember to give them a copy of the growing instructions (available online or in your Veg Champions pack).

Who can get Involved?

If you are a teacher in the West Midlands or represent a school in the West Midlands then we would love to hear from you. We will provide seeds for pupils of any age or ability. We’re also happy to have Home School Groups/Networks involved. Fill in our sign up form online to get your FREE Veg Champions pack.

What next?

Once you receive your free Veg Champions pack you can choose to do as much or as little of the project as you like. However, we would love to hear from you! You can showcase your school on our Facebook Page by adding pictures and feedback about the project and talk to other schools involved. Your school will also be added to our Veg Champions list online so your pupils and parents can see that you are an official Veg Champion.
