The West Bridgford School gardening club are setting ourselves a new challenge. We would like to develop an existing gardening club area and create a sensory garden. As a school we are encouraging us all to become more aware of our mental and emotional wellbeing and a sensory garden would provide a safe area where students could spend some time for reflection and get away from the stress and strains of teenage life.
We are hoping that different departments will support this venture and help the gardening club with fundraising, planning, designing, creating and maintaining the garden.
We would also like to hear from students and parents or carers. Perhaps you have some garden furniture you no longer want, or maybe some ideas or experience of creating a sensory garden? Any ideas or for more information please contact us.
