discover the joy of growing and making tasty meals
SET in the heart of a small, urban primary school in Hackney is a scene as beautiful as it is inspiring.
An orchard bears figs, peaches and damsons. Climbers swing heavy with grapes, broad beans and courgettes. Honey bees buzz from their hives, busying themselves among the wildflowers. Chickens pootle in their run. And schoolchildren chatter in their outdoor dining area, enjoying the produce they’ve grown, cooked and prepared from scratch.
