Britain: it’s time to Bake Your Lawn!

RealBread On 24th January, the Real Bread Campaign launches “Bake Your Lawn,” a scheme to encourage children around Britain to plant wheat in February and March to follow the Real Bread journey from seed to sandwich on their own doorsteps.

Free to download from, the Bake Your Lawn information pack is a grassroots guide for teachers and parents helping children of all ages, starting with just a small patch of earth and a handful of wheat, to grow it, mill it, bake it, eat it. Between them, Bake Your Lawn companions will be: making seed wheat available; organising community harvesting, milling and baking days; and encouraging their members to get involved.

Current Bake Your Lawn companions include the Big Lottery Fund’s Local Food programme, which provides funding for the Campaign; Bakery Bits; The National Trust; Organic Seed Producers; Slow Food UK; The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (Mills Section); The Soil Association; The Traditional Cornmillers Guild; and Trevor Cope Seeds; as well as many Real Bread Campaign members. The Campaign would like to hear from others who would like to join this coalition of the milling.

Part of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, the Real Bread Campaign champions locally- baked, 100% additive-free loaves and finds ways to make bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.
