Edible Playgrounds

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

Increasingly exposed to unhealthy food choices and with limited opportunities to grow and eat good food, one in three children leaving primary school are overweight or obese.

Edible Playgrounds offer a lively, engaging, multi-sensory way to teach children about growing and eating healthy food. Aside from the physical health benefits that eating well brings, learning in an outdoor environment combats Nature Deficit Disorder and has been shown to increase mental health by boosting mood, confidence and self-esteem. Furthermore, allowing the children to connect with nature develops attentiveness and self-reliance in the pupils, leading to more sustainable behaviours in the long term.



Edible Playgrounds have been created across the UK

We’ve already created 162 Edible Playgrounds, which supports thousands of children across the UK. But we want to make more, and we need your help to do it.
