Calling any parents who would like to help with planting out a herb garden in the KS1 Playground. 

Help is needed on morning of Tuesday 19th March at 10am (for as much time as you can offer, up to 1pm) 

Please email: Thanks!


Alongside the current fundraising auction ( to raise money for the full ‘Rewilding’ of the WP playgrounds, the creation of an outdoor classroom structure, a sensory garden and wildlife garden, a small grant has been secured for a herb garden border, next to Lancell street. Here are more details from Hackney Outdoors:

We have excellent news! Local charity Growing Green London has offered to buy the herbs we need to plant one of our planned borders at William Patten Primary School, the medicinal herb border! This border will allow the children to learn all about different types of herbs and ‘weeds’ that can be used to support health, and which might be used to make medicines or food.


It will also create a herbal border which the School can use with community groups if it so wishes, outside of school hours – for example on Saturday mornings, afterschool or in holidays. Garden visitors will be able to garden, harvest and make simple remedies using the plants.
