Kensington and Chelsea Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Many urban schools enjoy highly restricted outdoor, if any space at all. The idea behind this initiative is to provide these schools with that rare gift of earth in which to plant and watch things grow and to provide the surrounding community that same opportunity during school holidays. Our first project of 2017 is to support and oversee the conversion of Christ Church Kensington’s south garden area into an edible teaching ground that cannot only be enjoyed by the congregation and local community, but also provide the local primary schools with an outdoor learning space. In order for the space to be transformed we must first repair the orphaned asset, the Kynance Mews Wall The local schools already in support of the edible garden are: Victoria Road Montessori, Victoria Rd, Christ Church Kensington, London W8 5RQ Thomas’s School Kensington, 17-19 Cottesmore Gardens, Kensington, London W8 5PR St. Mary Abbot’s C of E school, 2 Kensington Church Ct, Kensington, London W8 4SP

What we'll deliver:

  • Commission Edible Playground to design and build an edible teaching garden
  • Supply all materials and tools for the schools and community to make use of the garden for at least 12 months
  • Pay for the construction labour of the new garden area
  • Supply workshops and seminars to both the schools and community
  • Employ a gardener part time for at least 12 months to maintain the garden and help run the projects with the communtiy.
  • Provide volunteer opportunties
  • Repair the orphaned asset, the Kynance Mews Wall

Why it's a great idea:

The Growing Space Garden Project will: • Engage young people from local primary schools in growing food. • Improve understanding of where food comes from and how it is grown. • Promote scientific knowledge of ecology in the context of growing food. • Inspire young people to establish positive and healthy eating habits. Help to build a community spirit, connecting young and old by providing a space for plants and people to grow in harmony.

Steps to get it done:

  • Design of the garden space by Edible Playground
  • Construction of the garden space
  • Buying equipment and supplies
  • Opening of the garden to schools and the public
  • Repair the wall to allow for construction
