Our Edible Playground
In 2018, we the Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, officially opened our Edible Playground with 12 flower beds and a greenhouse that we can plant in and later that year we won the Tower Hamlets in Bloom ‘Best Newcomer Award’!
The Edible Playgound was designed and built by the charity ‘Trees for Cities’ and we continue to work with them today.
Our Early Years children have beds that they use all year round and the rest of the beds are looked after by a different year group each half-term. Each week the children learn not only how to plant seeds and bulbs but also how to look after them and they make sure that the plants have enough water and that all the weeds are being taken out.
We’ve also have run family clubs during the school holidays. If you want to know more about the Edible Playground, please speak to Joe, our gardener.
