Examples of our work
We redeveloped the habitat study area at Fairfield Preparatory School, Loughborough, by creating raised beds for vegetables, planting sensory herbs and a butterfly meadow, constructing a circle of log seats and making three different minibeast hunting areas.
In Leicester, we worked alongside school council students at Thurnby Lodge Primary School to build and stain 4 large wooden planters, providing islands of greenery (and valuable habitat) in their tarmac playground.
At Church Langton Primary School, we designed and created a new and sizeable garden space. We put in paths, a log seating area, three small ponds, flower and vegetable beds, some brash piles and a turf stack for habitat and minibeast safaris.
Tessa Bladon, Year 6 Teacher at Church Langton Primary School, said:
“The Grow Wild Team was just what we were looking for. They sensitively interpreted designs by our Year 6 children and have created the template for us to work with over the next few months.When complete we will have an environment which provides a large variety of habitats for wildlife and a wonderful place for children and adults to work, observe, reflect and relax.”
