The Edible Playground

@Chesterton Primary School

Welcome to Chesterton Primary School's Edible Playground website.

The project is to transform an area of our school into a vibrant outdoor learning space that excites and teaches children about growing and eating healthy food.

By instilling healthy eating habits at an early age, this helps to reduce obesity, food poverty and lack of access to nature.

Our Edible Playground will provide a platform for fun and engaging lessons in an outdoor environment. The Edible Playground will enhance school learning and health, including food growing, cooking and healthy eating, food education and enterprise.

The project will provide the children at Chesterton with quality green space that they will take ownership of. Growing their own fruit and vegetables and encouraging nature by creating habitats.
