New Edible Walk at St. Luke's Community Centre
St Luke’s Community Centre in Islington is launching it’s new Mosaic trail this half term.
The Mosaic trail is a self-guided walk through the Edible Yard — marked with beautiful handmade mosaic tiles and map. It opens on Wednesday 19 February from 10:30-12 noon with a family gardening activity and a puppet show from the Little Angel Theatre.
Poppy Fishman from St Luke’s says: “We’re excited to open up our Edible Yard with a guided trail so everyone can explore and learn where food comes from and how an outdoor area in the middle of a city can thrive. We also welcome people to meet St Luke’s resident worms and chickens! Our Edible Yard is a special green community space and we want locals of all ages to be able to enjoy it all year round.”
The Edible Yard was established in 2017 from St Luke’s old car park following major residential development on the site. It’s a community food growing space at the back of the Community Centre, featuring large raised beds with hundreds of edible plants, greenhouses, sheds, several composting methods, a wormery, a wildlife patch, a pizza oven, outdoor eating areas and a flock of five chatty hens.
St Luke’s holds drop in gardening classes every Wednesday for accompanied school-aged children and houses Central Street Cookery School (amongst many other services and activities).
