Strawberries are a delicious and healthy snack and are great for school lunch boxes. Strawberries are easy for kids to help grow at home. Imagine the excitement and sense of achievement of growing some of their own fruity treats!
Strawberries can be grown in a sunny spot in your garden (a small raised bed is ideal) or a medium sized pot or hanging basket on a balcony or courtyard. You could also start a strawberry patch at school or grow potted strawberries on a sunny classroom veranda.
