Pride of Place for Schools Competition

“Meath County Council launches its 2017 Schools Pride of Place Garden Initiative”

Meath County Council’s Pride of Place School Gardening Scheme is back for 2017! The re-launch of the scheme in 2016 was a great success with just under fifty pre, primary and secondary schools taking part. The aim of the initiative is to provide school children the opportunity to learn about and be active in some level of gardening (flowers, vegetables, etc.) Through this experience, children may develop a greater sense of citizenship and care for the environment which may stay with them for their entire lives.
