Edible Gardens

Stanhope's Edible School Garden

We are pleased to be working with Letting Grow to sustain our edible garden.

The children are learning how sustainable, organic food choices can taste good and make them feel good. Children are learning that these choices can transform their health and the health of our planet. At Stanhope we are building a garden through which children are provided with hands-on learning experiences. In the garden, children get their hands dirty learning how to grow and maintain a variety of organic fruits, vegetables and grains.

Who are Letting Grow?

Ross Walker & Hannah Niskanen - co-founders

Ross and Hannah started letting grow over a mutual love for plants, vegan cooking and a shared concern for the planet 

Letting Grow was set up in 2018 to promote a greener planet by educating members of the public and schools on the benefits of growing vegetables and immersing yourself in nature.

As a not for profit organisation we aim to create or maintain edible green spaces in all shapes and sizes. An edible green space can be an allotment bed, a vertical farming wall or even a planter on a window sill . We want to show people that even with a small space you can enjoy the perks of growing your own vegetables.

We provide a variety of educational workshops and volunteer days for all ages from our allotment space in Acton and larger kitchen garden in Hampshire.
