Growing up, digging deep. The story of the Scouts, food and farming
The Tower is open Thursday to Sunday 10 til 4

Food is central to our lives. We all eat it, talk about it and most of us have a go at cooking or even growing it.
Since the start of the Scouts in 1908 it has also played an important role in the activity programme. Today Scouts in the UK offers almost half a million young people, aged four to 25 the chance to make new friends, have amazing adventures, and learn new skills. Through Scouts, young people learn to grow and make food, about the role it plays in keeping us healthy and its part in important celebrations.
This exhibition from the Scouts Heritage service explores the story of food and Scouts through three main themes: grow, make, and eat. From learning to use a horse and plough, responding to the needs of a country in wartime, to planning expedition menus and exploring new cultures, we will see how the Scouts has evolved and responded to stay relevant to its young people.
