Green Fingered Kids Voucher Scheme

Start Collecting Vouchers from 1st April 2019!
 
Green Fingered Kids is a home-grown initiative, now in its 14th year, which seeks to encourage children within the local area to pick up their gardening gloves and step outside!

This initiative works through a voucher scheme, that runs during the Spring, in which customers can collect vouchers from their in-store purchases (25p for every £10 spent) and donate these to local schools and youth groups who are signed up to the Green Fingered Kids initiative. These vouchers are then claimed back and can be spent in-store on products which benefits the children's gardening experience.

We are proud to run this scheme as not only does it encourage children to step outside and begin gardening but schools, and youth groups, have used the money to help create interactive lessons to teach kids about the importance of the environment, healthy eating and the natural life cycle.
 
Happy collecting!
