Day 16 – The Towpath Garden

IRYS

Today I saw a towpath garden.

Kids from Hanover Primary School in Islington have planted plants on the towpath.

They have planted a passion tree, a raspberry bush, some mint and a plant that looked like coriander.

I found a delicious ripe raspberry - yum

We met a lady who ran the garden and she told us all about it.  She showed us a photo of what the towpath looked like before.

The parents and children in each class get together and choose different plants for their garden.

Now they have days once a month so the people from the local community come along to help them look after their plants and to keep them tidy.

It’s very interesting and inspiring.
