The Chicken Town gang have teamed up with Earlsmead School in Tottenham on a long-term project to encourage healthy eating in the area. Work is underway on a new growing space, where pupils can grow their own food to cook and eat.

With help from the School Council and Eco Monitors, the team started to clear the planting areas ready to grow fruit, herbs and vegetables this week. We’re looking forward to the next workshop in June, to encouraging more budding young gardeners and to seeing and tasting some of the delicious produce in due course.

A big thanks to all the children who helped Dunya, Chicken Town’s Community Director, and Simon, our gardening expert, to kick start the project.

The project is supported by L&Q.
