GOING PLACES GROWING PLACES
Going Places, Growing Places
Over a period of eighteen months we worked with Martenscroft Nursery and Children’s Centre asking questions such as: What is this place like? How long does it take to grow plants? How is this affected by the changing seasons? In proposing and discussing their answers the children started to acquire the knowledge to understand how their small garden space connected to the wider environment and the city beyond. The day-to-day lives of the children’s use and activities within the gardens were improved by designing and building an inter-linking structure combined with growing beds which reflected the roof-scapes and buildings around them.
