Therapeutic Horticulture

Having moved sideways from therapeutic horticulture to therapeutic naturework I have found myself moving back again this week with around half my pupils choosing to sow seeds or plant bulbs.

Some pupils planted everything really close together.

Some chose the easiest pot to weed...

...whilst others took the more difficult route...

Some just played with the compost; with several really enjoying the experience of being given permission to get dirty...

We shared a lot of useful conversations, quite a lot centering on whose responsibility the plants are, with a number of pupils naming everybody but themselves.

I think this will be a theme we're working on for a while!!
