The Pond and Vegetable Growing Area

We have a large pond area with a variety of trees and shrubs including herbs and fruit trees. The pond is covered but allows children secure access for observation of a rich micro climate from frogs and newts to insects and tiny fresh water organisms. We have raised beds which children are encouraged to annually plant with edibles so they learn food/plant life cycles and know where planted food comes from.

The Pond and Vegetable Area is available for use on a playtime for active learning but also as a quiet place where children can enjoy nature for it's own sake, exploring and observing their own interests or sitting and reflecting.
