About Us

Sean Hide started Hens Idea in 2008 by launching the Grow A Tree starter pack. A few months past, and schools approached him to create a lesson around growing a tree seed. In 2009, Brooklyn primary was the first school and he has since been to more than 80+ schools encouraging more than 60 000 kids to grow indigenous tree seeds.

Sign up your school today so that Grow Group can motivate kids to grow indigenous tree seeds.


Each child will receive a grow kit to take home, which encourages your kids to grow trees for years to come. The lesson begins with growing a tree seed, soon after 9 months of patience, persistence and participation; the child plants their baby tree in the ground. To top it off, we ask you to send us the trees co-ordinates. This is how you can become part of the million-tree campaign! Its Grow Groups plan to save Earth.
