The roof garden at Sir John Cass's Foundation Primary School boasts views across the City of London and comprises raised fruit and vegetable beds. These are complemented by companion planting and varieties which enhance the local air quality. There are also containerised fruit trees as well as a composting system which ensures a rich learning resource of worms, woodlice and centipedes. The school’s Gardening Club grows and harvests the crops which are used by the kitchen, parents and staff. Bird life is in abundance in this vibrant garden which showcases the importance of plants to our environment.
