Summary

Food4families have been working with St Mary and All Saints Primary School in Coley Park since 2011 to develop a food growing space in a corner of the school grounds that everyone can enjoy.

Members of the eco club came up with the deisgn which has the beds laid out to form the shape of a cross to reflect that it is a church school. A pergola with hops and kiwi plants growing up it has been added, along with a small orchard, raspberries and compost bins. All the fruit and vegetables harvested are shared out amongst those who attend or sold after school to raise funds for next years seeds.

Any child can come along to the sessions led by our Food4families tutor as long as they have parental permission.
