Welcome to our Edible Playground page!
Here at Cheviot, we have once again begun our Edible Playground project in which we are working together as a whole school to plant, tend and eat the fruit and vegetables we have grown in our garden.
At the beginning of May 2022, we planted a whole new range of produce with the wonderful help and support from the Woolsington Parish Council (woolsington-parish-council.com), who not only donated money to help us with our project, but also gave us fantastic advice about which plants we could grow.
We would like to say a particular thank you to Joanne Couchman and John Littleton for their advice and hard work, especially when preparing the beds for planting!
Watch this space for regular updates and information about how our Edible Playground is doing. We're also working hard to build biodiversity in our school grounds too: we already have some blue tits nesting in our nesting boxes and we're hoping that our buddleia plants attract some beautiful butterflies as the weather gets warmer.
Keep checking back to see how we're doing!
