SenStory will design an accessible sensory garden that reflects the diversity and multi-generational community of Manchester. The garden will include the opportunity to explore different scents, smells, textures, shapes, colour and tastes - sensory stimulation which is critical to healthy brain development. A place to get away from it all, where time stops and demands on life are temporarily non-existent. The community will be invited into the garden to be able to work in partnership with Martenscroft Nursery School in developing their own and their children’s awareness and respect for nature and the climate. SenStory will design a garden for children of all abilities to learn through heightening their senses through peers and supportive adults. Using the resources of the garden means different things to different children, a place where it is alright to make mistakes or practice skills in a secure and supportive environment.
