Invest in health & wellbeing by growing hyper-local
Home grown produce is intense and aromatic, therefore needing smaller quantities to achieve the required flavour to your dish. Unusual crops that are often difficult to find and expensive to buy in the supermarket, are easy to grow.
Salads, vegetables, herbs and fruit once separated from their source of nutrients i.e. plant or vine undergo moisture loss, nutrient decline and quality of appearance. The freshness of the produce makes a significant impact on taste and presentation to dishes. Crop your produce fresh from plant to plate to achieve the optimum from your food.
Grow most types of vegetables, salads, aromatic herbs and some fruit on rooftops, balconies, terraces and gardens.
Enjoy the incomparable taste, quality and nutritional value of fresh home grown organic produce. Transform ordinary recipes into extraordinary gourmet experiences. Great food begins with great produce.

Grow an edible learning school yard and take the curriculum outside the classroom. School gardens are living laboratories where interdisciplinary lessons are drawn from real life experiences, encouraging students to become active participants in the learning process.
Did you know that children who plant their own fruit and vegetables are more likely to eat them? For nursery and primary school children, who are not yet in charge of their food choices, a school garden is a great place to construct a foundation for healthy eating. Think of the school yard as an open-air classroom for cultivating, learning and tasting different fruit, vegetables and aromatic herbs fresh from the soil. Positive experiences in the outdoor classroom lead to new habits at home.
The Agriculture Box Edible Garden Project enables hands-on-learning in a variety of educational subjects for any curriculum from pre-school to college or university. It includes educational charts, short lectures on the introduction to soil microbiology, composting, nutrition and the benefits of growing organic.
Agriculture Box Enterprising Education Projects can also provide valuable funds for schools by pupils hosting market days and selling the produce to parents. Food growing also provides a practical opportunity for numeracy based learning and gaining business enterprise skills for every age group.
