Trees for Cities - Edible Playgrounds

Trees for Cities is a charity working with schools to create vibrant food growing spaces. We create bespoke outdoor classrooms that sit at the heart of a school’s community, bringing the curriculum to life as well as providing countless benefits in improving the physical and mental health and wellbeing of pupils, families and staff.

Trees for Cities is pleased to announce its Edible Playground programme is coming to Bradford. I am a Project Development Officer based in the area and we are looking for a small number of schools to work with us in creating Edible Playgrounds as flagship outdoor spaces here in the city. We will work with you from the initial survey, design and build through to teacher training.

Schools are asked to contribute £5,000 (+ VAT) of the total £30,000 cost, assuming a standard sized project. Trees for Cities will fund the remaining cost through their corporate partners.

The project will need the agreement of the headteacher and schools typically fund their contribution through Pupil Premium, Sports Premium, infrastructure budgets or special grants. Trees for Cities can advise on potential funding streams. There will need to be a suitable space for development - about half the size of a tennis court.

Please contact me for further information.

Our Story
We are simply 3 Mums with a Passion for using creativity to empower others.

Natalie Collick
Nursery Nurse and trainee Play Therapist.
I have always had a desire and a passion for helping people. Throughout my career i have had many roles in dealing with people and building strong relationships.
After having my own children I decided to take a career break and gained a healthcare and social care and childcare qualification. This lead me to assist my local childrens’ centre and becoming parent champion of the area and running my own messy play sessions.
Once my children were at school i worked in a local nursery and started a play therapy course as i realised that there are so many needs that are not being met in schools and nurseries.
I am a just a mum , who enjoys supporting families and have a natural flare with building strong bonds between parents and children.

Corinna Parkins’
Trained Primary Teacher with a passion for raising self esteem in young children and a heart for bringing and growing community through the creative arts
After Teaching in Mainstream Primary School I was frustrated at the lack of time and attention that was payed in developing children’s self esteem and self worth. With the focus being more and more upon the educational side i felt that many children were struggling and falling through the gap unable to learn coping strategies and life skills for the future!
I also am passionate about supporting families and building community through creative mediums.

Kate Morris
Degree in Drama and the community
Trained and experienced Drama workshop leader as well a fully qualified Nursery Nurse with a over 20 years experience of working with children and the wider community to build up confidence, self esteem and exploring difficult social issues through the medium of Drama and the creative arts.
I have a believe drama and the creative arts are a fantastic way to help people to grow in confidence and self-esteem. Through drama you can safely explore the world and face it's problems without stigma and judgement.

Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association

UWFRA’s address `The Hut` may be a little confusing, but when the team was first inaugurated in August 1948, we kept our meagre supply of borrowed and loaned equipment in the local police cell. Over the first three years much talk took place of obtaining a garden hut or shed, and where it could be sited, but eventually a disused railway parcel van, was bought from British Rail and moved from the station platform of the Grassington and Threshfield Station onto a nearby car park. After much needed renovation, inside and out, the association had its `new` headquarters where it could house an increasing amount of equipment and hold its meetings. It was familiarly known as `The Hut` a name, which has continued ever since.

Some 14 years went by and the parcels van was outgrown. The team managed to obtain a much larger building, a disused signal box, but this was some 300 metres away down the railway line. The parcels van was moved out of the way on rollers and after much preparation, the signal box was moved by crane and low-loader into the vacated space. This building on two floors, allowed for storage, lamp charging, a radio room downstairs and a large meeting room upstairs.

In 1972 we learned that the ground upon which the signal box stood had been sold for housing development. A nearby friendly quarry owner, loaned us the temporary use of a storage building for our equipment and meetings had to be held in any available large room.

After lengthy negotiations, and with the help of a number of benefactors, the team moved into a new building in 1976. This was the first centre in the country built purely for the purpose of mountain and cave rescue, which gave the planners a few problems and explains why building looks more like a four bedroom house!

The new building was officially opened by the Prince of Wales in 1978. The new headquarters allowed space for all the varied equipment, a lamp room, a specialist diving gear room, a radio and communications room, control room, meeting room, office, kitchen and drying room.

Since 1978 there have been two extensions built to house the vehicles, trailers and to provide space for training. There is talk of a new extension to house the increasing amount of equipment owned by the team.
