Event Details

 

Gardening - Planting for now and for the future 

Come and learn about the design elements of habitat based play environments from a landscape perspective. How do we create a nourishing outdoor space for both educators and children?  What is horticulture therapy and how can we use it as a tool to enhance wellbeing? This session combines information about horticulture and play design principles with practical gardening tips that will inspire and equip you to create sensory garden spaces with and for children.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

Explore horticulture and play space design elements

Develop an understanding of key product and plant selection, including plant risk assessment

Explore how to work with children to create therapeutic garden play spaces

 

Facilitator: Jenn Reed

Deeply embedded in the power of our natural environment to nourish health and wellbeing, Jenn’s approach is grounded in 20 years experience in early years education. She has qualifications in both sustainable landscape design and children’s services. Her passion is crafting outdoor spaces that help people connect with nature, each other and themselves. When not designing gardens and play spaces, you may find Jenn perusing farmers markets in search of local produce or indeed in her own garden.
