We are delighted to announce that an Edible Playground will be built on site at Courtwood, during the Easter break. Trees for Cities have invested £25,000 into the project, with a £5,000 contribution from the school and PTFA. The project will allow the children to access gardening, growing and harvesting activities all year round, with lots of support from Trees for Cities and the teachers. The news was shared with the children in an assembly, and they were shown pictures of the raised beds, greenhouse, garden shed, bicycle wheel trellis, wormery and tools that they will be able to access as part of their outdoor learning across the curriculum. There will also be an open classroom space for the children to work in while outside. Each class will have a raised bed and be able to grow their own produce. Hopefully we will be able to use the produce grown for some of our school lunches and perhaps even in a school shop to parents. We are also hoping to engage some keen gardening parents and family members, who might like to be a part of the Edible Playground.
