Calling all little veggie growers

Wednesday, 29th January, 2020 4:05pm

Innocent will once again partner with the growing experts at GIY and give primary school kids the chance to grow their own tasty food.

The campaign has been developed closely with teachers and educational specialists to give aspiring junior gardeners the information and tools to create their own little vegetable patch in their garden, classroom or even on their windowsill. Joining the campaign this year is Cork's own food writer and chef Lilly Higgins, who is behind the book, ‘Stuff I Make, Bake and Love’ and comedy TV show ‘Fancy Vittles’, hosted with her sister Maeve.

She said: “I am so excited to be involved in the innocent Big Grow. This campaign is doing something very important. It's building a lifelong love of healthy food with children. If we can instill a love of homegrown produce with kids at an early age, we are giving them a valuable skill for life!”

Speaking about the partnership GIY founder Michael Kelly said: “The children not only learn the science of growing, they also experience the joy of growing and eating their own food. We are delighted to work with innocent on this once again and we hope these life lessons stay with our growers into adulthood.”
