Get OK accredited with The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code and stay safe in the sun
There is always a lot to do in the garden and we actively encourage children to get outdoors, get involved and have fun. But just as we educate children about plants that sting and insects that bite, we have to tell them about the danger from too much sun, and the importance of avoiding sunburn.
The RHS Campaign for School Gardening supports the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code, an initiative for all those who work outdoors with children. Devised by the Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund it aims to encourage children to enjoy themselves outdoors, but to stay sun protected.
