North Edinburgh Grows artist Natalie has been busy collecting stories of play for the revamp of the garden’s greenhouse. Natalie is interested in outdoor play, and will collate stories told by local children with memories of play told by older people who grew up locally, creating a booklet of outdoor play. Some of the stories will feature on the walls of the renovated greenhouse walls, as part of a spray painted art installation.
Natalie ran two workshops with local schools, working with experienced storytellers to explore play with the school children – Ryan Van Winkle worked with P7 at St Davids RC Primary School and Virginia Radcliffe worked with P6 at Craigroyston Primary School.
Here’s Virginia working with Craigroyston Primary:

Our revamped greenhouse will be unveiled soon! Watch this space.
