The Wyandotte County Extension Master Gardeners are sponsoring "Creating a Child's Sensory Garden" on Thursday, October 6, 2022, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Children learn about their environment through their senses, acquiring knowledge of the natural world. In this program, Pamela Hubbard shows how she created a simple sensory garden with her little friend, Lucy. She gives tips for gardening with children, including planning, tools, and safety issues. Pam explains some of the design considerations for sensory gardens for children and adults. She suggests suitable plants that enliven the senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. In addition, she describes some wonderful year-round gardening activities for children that will pique their interest and teach them gardening principles.
Ms. Hubbard is a garden coach offering tips and advice for the home gardener on all manner of garden and plant related issues. She is a master gardener emerita, frequently asked to train new gardeners for Penn State Extension. She was born in England, where she acquired the love of gardening at her grandmother’s knee. Her gardens have received three blue ribbons from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society; they were featured in the Summer 2020 edition of Country Gardens Magazine. She can be found, endlessly pursuing her dream of recreating her grandmother’s cottage garden, at a small farm in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
