Edible garden at Museum of Garden History

Local children have designed and created an edible garden in a summer holiday activity organised by the Museum of Garden History.

The children planted a variety of foods including peppers, onions, lettuces, cauliflowers and tomatoes plus a selection of herbs in the green space in front of the Museum of Garden History with the permission of Lambeth Council.

The garden will be tended throughout the summer and the children will harvest the crops in September.

They will use the sun's energy to cook the food in solar ovens that they built during the workshop and most importantly enjoy the taste of food that they have grown themselves.

The edible garden project follows the Edible Estate created in Webber Street in connection with Tate Modern's Global Cities exhibition.
