Were so excited about the return of Grow2Ceo. This campaign gives students of secondary schools across Ireland the chance to gain a better understanding of growing food and encourages discussion around healthier food sourcing and food choices.The end goal of the campaign is for students to create a soup recipe using the knowledge they have learned throughout four key challenges over 8 weeks. The four challenges will include planting their spinach seeds, coming up with a food business idea, learning about food marketing, and creating a recipe.
The WINNER of the coveted Grow2CEO 2019 award will win prizes to the value of €5000 for the winning students, teacher and the school itself. This includes:
A vegetable garden worth €3,000 for the school
An overnight break away to Ballymaloe House for the winning teacher
GROW2CEO hoodies for the winning class.
The students so far have completed lesson plan one by receiving their free grow kits and planting their spinach seeds. Lesson plan two begins this this week which involves building a business plan and developing entrepreneurial skills. We can't wait to see what the students come up with
