Edible Playgrounds are exactly that – they transform areas of school grounds into vibrant outdoor spaces, which teach children about growing and eating healthy food. The World Health Organization regards childhood obesity as one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century.
Many children in inner city areas don’t know how plants grow or where food comes from, and obesity, food poverty and malnutrition among children in the UK is increasing. Edible Playgrounds help to tackle these issues head-on, by providing children with access to nature. Our fun and engaging lessons support the school curriculum and help to instil healthy eating habits at an early age.
We’ve already created over 30 Edible Playgrounds, which support more than 10,000 children across the UK. But we want to make more, and we need your help to do it.
