From the allotment to the table

Teaching children healthy eating habits that will stick with them long after they have left ABC is something that is very important to the team. We are always looking at ways to show children and their families sustainable ways to eat healthily, to grow some of their own produce and eat more whole foods.


We love to get creative with the foods we offer and find new and interesting ways to use different produce. We visit our allotment plot with the children weekly and show them how to grow, tend to, harvest and ultimately use the array of fruits, vegetables and herbs they grow.


Our latest venture is holding workshops for the children showing them different ways to use the allotment goods they have harvested. These workshops are held in Lynsey’s Kitchen and are fondly know as ‘From the allotment to the table’. The well established and loved allotment plot has grown many different herbs, fruits and vegetables in the 20 years Lynsey has been tending to it and has given countless children memories to last a life time.
