Out of mud amazing things can grow!
This spring, teach your class about the benefits of soil and how out of mud, amazing things can grow!
We’ve got everything you need including a lesson plan, worksheet, colouring activity, wordsearch and a reflection on the theme of spring and hope.
Your class will learn about how Send a Cow is working with families in rural Africa to look after their soil so that they can grow a brighter future free from poverty and hunger.
“I now use cow dung to fertilise my land. Now my harvests are big and that makes me happy. I have all the food I need.”
Spring into action!
Spring into action and help more families like Edith’s to look after their soil and grow brighter futures.
Challenge your class to grow the tallest bean plant!

How your class can make a difference this spring
Raising £100 could provide 12 chickens for families, providing nutritious eggs and manure for fertiliser.
Raising £250 could provide training for 35 families to improve the quality of their soil.
Raising £350 could provide 25 families with super-strong seeds that stand up to Climate Change.
“Send a Cow really inspired conversation and got the children thinking about the needs of those less fortunate than themselves and about the socio-economic and climatic challenges they face.”
