Woodland Sensory Garden Plans

Community Space On The Bank

One of the aims of the Great Central Woodland Management team is to make the woodland an asset for all in the village. Sensory Gardens can be calming, therapeutic spaces that stimulate the senses of all, as a way of connecting better with nature by appealing to the senses of sound, smell, taste, sight and touch.

As mentioned in the Management Team’s February meeting, the Woodford Halse Kindness Group is hoping to create a sensory garden in the Woodland. They have now started to put their thoughts together on how the garden might be created.Kindness Group logo

The Parish Council is making an area of land available next to the Co-op-Station Road path as this can be made wheelchair accessible.

Here are their first thoughts on the layout of the garden with some notes on the work that the group thinks will be needed to create it.
