More than 1,000 West London schoolchildren took part in A Rocha UK’s recent competition to design a sensory garden for the Wolf Fields Project.
Entrants came from four primary and infant schools in the area around A Rocha UK’s national office in Southall. They had to create a design on A4 paper using pencil and crayon, to help visitors engage with Wolf Fields using different combinations of senses.
‘There were some beautiful pieces of artwork,’ said Environmental Education Officer David Melville. ‘One student was a budding landscape designer, and another produced a garden that reflected their school’s colours.’
Judges have chosen four overall winners and eight runners-up, whose names will be announced later. Their ideas will influence the final design of the sensory garden, which will enable those with learning difficulties and impairments to enjoy the natural environment of the restored Wolf Fields site.
