So far hopefully folks in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Uganda and the United Kindom have joined the challenge - could you help us cover more of our map?

Get involved, invite your friends and relatives to take part in our global challenge today.

You’ll be helping us break down the barriers that stand in the way of children getting the education that is vital to their future as well as being in with a chance at snatching the prize for best grower from Grace.

Once you have your seeds planted please keep us updated on the progress of your flowers by posting your photos and updates on our facebook page or using the hash tag #awamugrowoff on instagram and twitter – we’ll reweet and share your progress with everyone else taking part.
