The mayor of Tower Hamlets opened an edible garden and playground at a school in Poplar.
John Biggs visited Lansbury Lawrence in Cordelia Street on Tuesday to see their edible garden and officially open the new playground.
His visit coincided with the school’s International Day, a celebration of the diversity within the local community.
Every Monday and Wednesday, Year Five students have been helping the school’s gardener in the new edible garden. They’ve been composting dead plants to make new soil, collecting seeds, planting beetroots and harvesting fruit and vegetables to sell to parents.
The organic produce gets sold at the end of each school day, and the edible garden was open to parents during Tuesday’s visit.
