Appetite for Action Supporters

In 2011 we are working with a number of different supporters who are very excited about helping YOU take action in your school and garden. As a registered school you can benefit from the exclusive discounts. As a registered Challenge School you could be chosen by the Appetite for Action Team as our “School of the Week” and win fantastic prizes donated by our extremely generous supporters:

We are extremely pleased to welcome back Hen and Hammock who are once again generously donating prizes to School’s of the Week throughout January. The winning schools will be able to frighten off any potential seed nibblers as Hen and Hammock will be sending them all a wonderful Scarecrow Kit. Partly made from recycled materials, both children and the environment will love the creative side of building their own scarecrows.
