GREAT NEWS FOR SCHOOLS AND NURSERIES
HYDROVEG have a wonderful offer for Schools and Nurseries. When you buy a HydroVeg Kit - we will deliver it, build it with the children (build by numbers). As we build it we will talk about its structure, angles, water speed, how plants grow, and everything practical linking the Kit to Key Stages 1-4. When it is built we pot the plants with the children discussing what can grow, seasons etc.
Finally we run 2 classroom sessions in where we talk about Hydroponics, the future of Hydroponics, nutrition, the importance of eating Veg, variety and types of vegetables we can grow. We finish with a classroom quiz and leave the school with its very own EDUCATION PACK to share with other classes. You pay the same price as the ordinary Kits and we give you the rest in that price.
