The Wildlife Watch Garden is where I am a volunteer gardener. I’m involved in developing a kids’ garden called Sunplace Special: A Children’s Garden. This garden was the class project of the master gardener class of 2007. It consists of eight different garden areas with the following kid-friendly themes: Five Senses, Storybook, Fairy, Bird & Butterfly, Barnyard, Vegetable, Hands-On, and Wildlife Watch.
Sunplace Special has a budget that you can’t even describe as shoestring. But it has dedicated gardeners that continue to dream and improve it each year. Already it is a place where children can learn about plants, where food originates, and how they can help their planet Earth.
The Wildlife Watch Garden is a place where kids can learn to explore the living creatures in their own backyard and how flora and fauna interact. I will keep you updated with our trials and tribulations and hope to hear from those that have trod this path before; do you have any experience and advice for me? I’d love to hear from you.
