Seed supplier Sutton Seeds is partnering with a new campaign to encourage children to grow their own curry vegetables and broaden their knowledge about world cuisines.

The #GROWYOUROWNCURRY campaign will see children grow curry ingredients from seed supplied by Sutton, alongside classroom activities to encourage discussion about global foods. Other partners include Asian food supplier East End Spices, consumer magazine Chaat! Magazine and children’s book publisher Sweet Cherry Publishing.

Schools in Leicester, the Vale of Glamorgan, Southampton and Scottish Highlands have already signed up, with others encouraged to follow suit.

Schools across the country have already joined in, include primary schools just to name a few places!

To take part in the campaign, schools are expected to organise a gardening club as well as publically post under the hashtag #GROWYOUROWNCURRY on their schools website, Facebook or Twitter.

As a further incentive, schools have the chance to win £200 worth of primary school books, with one child from each winning school also awarded with a further £25 worth of book tokens.

To enter, pupils must write to the British Curry Club describing how they have enjoyed taking part in the new gardening club.
