Provision Summary:
Edible Playgrounds transform school grounds into vibrant outdoor teaching gardens that inspire hands-on learning and get children excited about growing and eating healthy food. They help improve health and wellbeing, open up access to nature, and provide a fun outdoor learning environment that supports cross-curriculum teaching.

The Edible Playgrounds programme offers a comprehensive service comprising engagement of the whole school community, design, build, planting with pupils, teacher training, and planning support throughout the academic year. The uniqueness and value of the programme lies in embedding food-growing into the school curriculum across all subjects so that teachers learn to teach through gardening, not to become gardeners themselves. This approach builds teachers’ skills and confidence to use their Edible Playground in fresh, innovative ways as an outdoor teaching resource.

Target Group: Primary School / Secondary School

Cost implication for the school: A typical Edible Playground project costs £30,000 with schools asked to make a contribution of no more than £5,000 plus VAT. Trees for Cities will meet the remaining cost through our corporate funders. We can advise you on where best to access specific grants and funding.
