It was designed for children to watch, grow, nurture, eat and smell fresh produce. The area is a special place to share together, attracting birds, butterflies, insects and a variety of wildlife. They can dig in the soil, see worms, make potions, and explore the earth. The area offers shade for children to relax in a natural environment.
The garden also offers a play space encouraging children to move, clamber, jump, stretch, bend, run and use all their senses.
During the summer period the older children have the opportunity to take part in Forest school sessions led by Tom Handley (Forest school teacher)
The Forest garden has a designated allotment space where children can plant, grow and eat their own foods.
