A school catering for pupils with severe learning difficulties is developing a garden area for students, thanks to the support of a local business.
Old Barn Nurseries, at Dial Post, has supplied plants to the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee School in Horsham. The project has been funded by The Budding Foundation, a local charity supporting young people in need.
The charity has employed Eiluned Jones from Thousand Leaf Garden Design to design a sensory garden for the one hundred-plus students to enjoy.
She visited the school recently to present her plan and provide advice on planting. Georgina Ral, who is responsible for outdoor learning at the school, said the students are ‘excited and keen to get underway with the planting’.
