Herb planting at Sadler’s Wells

At Sadler’s Wells, we have a Green Team that makes sure that all we do is as environmentally friendly as we possibly can. The team is responsible for overseeing the implementation of our Sustainability Action Plan and meets regularly throughout the year to review progress and discuss new ideas on how to further improve our environmental performance.

One of these ideas was for us to have our own, Sadler’s Wells-grown herbs. And so it was that Emma, our Director of Technical and Production and Chair of the Green Team, and Elsa, Administrative Assistant of the Visitor Services & Estates team, came in early one recent morning to haul around sacks of compost in our courtyard and plant parsley, sage, thyme, marjoram, chives and mint in a brand new planter built by Ghion, our resident carpenter in the Building Services team. The wooden herb planter is on wheels, so that it can be moved around to make the most of the sun.

Those summer mojitos will taste even better, knowing the mint comes from our own, mini herb garden!
