A Sensory Garden

Winter does not look like the perfect season for starting a new garden. However . . .  

Alyona Ovlashevich, who works in The Boarding Home for Children with Special Needs while studying towards a degree in landscape design, came up with the idea of a sensory garden on the territory of the home.  . . .

‘There is a vacant plot of land on the territory of the boarding home. It caught my attention some time ago,” Alyona says. “We are going to improve it and transform it into a sensory garden next spring. I am certain that it will bring a lot of positive feelings and new discoveries to our children!’ . . . 

Nature plays an important role in the children’s upbringing and education. . . . The children will be able to look at the beautiful plants, smell their scents, touch the plants and even taste some of them.  . . .
