Schools Grow Project

The Schools Grow Project with Computer Science and DT has got off to a great start. The project involves automating the feeding and watering of fruit and veg using Raspberry Pi’s and a variety of Sensors to measure soil moisture levels and environmental conditions to ensure the groups have the best chance of growing, with the future goal of having our project powered by 100% renewable energy. We recently received confirmation that Marling will be a choice for the Stroud Tesco Blue Chip Community Grant. We are accepted due to our focus on sustainability and education of food security. If you do happen to shop at Tesco in Stroud, please do vote for our cause using your blue chip. Each project gets some funding regardless of end position.
