The Problem

We have an outdoor space that would be perfect for a learning garden. Due to COVID we would like to give the children a chance to be outside more, and for teachers to have an outdoor space where they can offer lessons. We'd also like to incorporate environmental awareness into our project through choosing plants that have a learning aspect to them. So the garden is a place to learn on two different planes.

Our Plan

To purchase plants and materials to create a garden. We will also be purchasing small mats for the children to sit on. We will also create learning nooks where the children can read and learn about the plants that were chosen and how they reflect the diversity of our school through their own diversity.
