Providing children with an area in your outdoors in which they can grow their own plants gives them the opportunity to learn about caring for and harvesting from an early age, so helping to develop their understanding of the food chain and the environment around them. For younger children, the chance to dig away and take endless pleasure in shifting piles of earth from one area to another will not only help to develop their hand/eye coordination, but also their understanding of capacity, movement and space. Raised and flat beds ensure that all children can get involved, whilst a wide variety of options including greenhouses, allotment areas, composting and rain water harvesting equipment help children to learn as they play. Built-in tool storage makes sure the area remains safe and tidy when not in use. This educational play area is also a rich source of natural colour and texture in your outdoors.
