Sensory Garden Project
As part of the Our Manchester council initiative “aimed at helping people create special, unusual and interesting projects in Manchester that are shaped and used by local communities and businesses.” Kids Creative has teamed up with RHS winner and BBC Radio Manchester gardening expert Lee Burkhill a.k.a Garden Ninja to create a Sensory Story Garden in Wythenshawe Park.
The sensory story garden will be somewhere to relax, enjoy, notice, play and enjoy a sensory story, somewhere to celebrate creativity and play in its most basic forms, free from rules and regulations. Somewhere the imagination can run wild.
The garden will be a safe space for children and adults of all abilities to enjoy as well as help those with learning difficulties and other additional needs.
We are looking for local creative people to get involved with the project.
The garden will be created for the community by the community so we are looking for your help. Local artists, groups, children and adults of all ages and abilities can come together to #takeaminute. #takeaminute to paint a pebble. Your pebble will become part of the story of the garden. Each pebble will be on show for everyone to see. Paint a character, your favourite artwork, place or memory, or even a fingerprint to have a lasting imprint on the garden.
