Our work

Edible Playgrounds

Many children in inner city areas don’t know where their food comes from

and obesity, food poverty and malnutrition among children in the UK is increasing.

 The World Health Organization regards childhood obesity as one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century.

Edible Playgrounds help to tackle these issues head-on, by providing children with access to nature. Our fun and engaging lessons support the school curriculum and help to instil healthy eating habits at an early age.

These innovative outdoor spaces transform school grounds into vibrant teaching gardens that inspire learning and get children excited about growing and eating healthy food.
