Extending public spaces for domestic production such as allotments and opening parts of parks or schools for residents and students to grow flowers, fruits and vegetables. The Food for Life Partnership (which includes the Focus on Food Campaign, Garden Organic and the Health Education Trust) is a network of schools and communities across the UK which are committed to transforming food culture. As part of the partnership, many schools have set aside some land for growing food and vegetables – which can then be eaten by students at lunchtime.
