Over 500 children took part in the Vegetable Takeover in the Mall, Walthamstow, London.
Ten days of the Easter Holiday turned a space in the shopping centre in to a vegetable loving community space with colourful workshops all inspired by vegetables.
While some children were hunting for chocolate eggs at their local shopping centre this past Easter, young visitors at The Mall Walthamstow were being initiated to the ways of the Secret Seed Society. The UK-based organisation, which works on urban food education as well as growing and expressive projects, brought its workshops to the centre to promote healthy eating and vegetable fun. Among the highlights: a stop-motion video that more than 50 children helped produced and which was set to Grow Food, a hip-hop track by America’s Appetite for Change.
