Play Sow and Grow takes the best of old-fashioned children’s play and gives it a modern city twist, focusing on the outdoors, the environment, planting, feeding and growing in our purpose-built centre on the Three Mills Estate in Stratford.

Open in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays for play, we give children the chance to sow and grow their own vegetables, care for our flock of excitable chickens, and have fun in the garden or occasionally indoors. And during the day we welcome local families for various activities – everything from get fit classes to English lessons.

We also run special sessions for local schools, and can provide tailored group sessions for young people and adults on request.

Play, Sow and Grow is at 6 Gay Road, Stratford, E15 2RN.
