What is a sensory garden?
A sensory garden is an outdoor space that includes plants with textures, colours, shapes and smells that stimulate all of the senses.
It is a garden for all children but even more so for those with autism spectrum disorder, learning challenges, and behaviour difficulties.
This garden gives children the opportunity to explore the world and learn about plants. They can enjoy it without any distractions, just them and their senses.
