Areas of planting encourage children to understand where vegetables and food comes from as well as forming the basis for a number of educational play patterns.
Growing vegetables or sensory plants is a great way to encourage educational play. Planted areas attract birds, insects and butterflies to play spaces which children love to see.
Planters can be 'given' to groups of children who become responsible for their plants development and maintenance. This can be linked into classroom or other educational activities about nature, plants and food production.
Planting can be combined with areas of natural surfaces such as turf, bark or sand to create exciting sensory environments.
