All schools should have an allotment.
Children are the ones who will up-teach their parents, the benefits
of having veg grown at home.
Studies have shown that interaction with soil is good for
your brain, it also has a multi level of educational uses.
Nutrition – Biology – Chemistry- Maths- P,E
It has always astounded me that a government would not use a

Defra could come up with some standards for the soil, and
the allotments could be looked over by a voluntary local group of knowledgeable
Locals could donate, so it may not even cost at all, just
time and effort.
