Morrisons gives schools free gardening equipment to help kids reconnect with nature and healthy food

Morrisons has launched ‘It’s Good To Grow’, a campaign in all of its stores that will donate gardening equipment to schoolchildren across the UK in the hope of educating kids about where their food comes from.
