Schools

Send Me Seeds Pip aim to help polinate, inspire and propagate schools and communities Australia wide. The idea is to make it easy for schools to include veggie gardening as part of their curriculum by giving them something to grow each season and providing all the resources including seasonal tips, inspiration and classroom garden tutorials.

 Many schools around Australia receive a seasonal seed subscription to ensure they have seeds to plant, and receive planting tips and harvest recipes each planting season. The school receives a letter each season including key garden activities, tips for planting each seed variety, enough seeds to plant for a full season harvest and inspirational poems and recipes to help grow the love of gardening. The Pip and Percy children's gardening book is also perfect for classroom education and aims to make gardening magical for the kids. This can be included as part of the school seed subscription, along with other teaching resources. Note each book includes a packet of Heirloom Tomato Seeds, and Nan's Heirloom Tomato Soup Recipe.
