Sensory Gardens

Friday, August 9, 2024
9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.


Experience the Sensory and Buehler Enabling Gardens and learn how these spaces can be used for sensory and mindfulness activities. Learn to help students develop observation skills using all their senses to look for patterns in nature. Take home sensory plants for your school or home garden. While this workshop is geared toward younger students, some activities can be adapted for older students. Attend this or other garden-themed workshops to learn what you can do with your class when you are on a free self-guided field trip at the Garden.
