Green Play Project

Green Play Project is a Somerset-based company aimed at designing and building creative, sustainable spaces for children.  Most work is carried out in school grounds and public parks.  The resulting outdoor areas are full of natural materials beautifully crafted into original structures, which combine play with wildlife habitats and food growing.  See www.greenplayproject.co.uk

Green Feasts supported Green Play Project in its initial development, providing research, design consultation, marketing, admin and financial planning services.  Tom has also carried out on-site landscaping and carpentry work for a number of projects.  We worked together for the first two years of the company’s life and are delighted that it is now a thriving business.

 

Grofun

GROFUN stands for ‘Growing Real Organic Food in Urban Neighbourhoods’ and is a Bristol-based social enterprise aimed at increasing the amount of food grown in the city.

In 2008-2009 we worked with Grofun to deliver the ‘Learning by Growing’ scheme.  For ‘Learning by Growing’, we made a successful funding application, allowing us to facilitate workshops and develop school growing areas for primary schools in Bristol.  Children learned about establishing varied growing areas, composting, plant propagation and care, and organic approaches to growing food.  We also offered related activities on ecosystems and natural science.  All this learning was carefully linked to National Curriculum objectives.  The initiative continues to be delivered, now named the ‘Plant to Plate’ project.  See www.grofun.org.uk for more information.
