Our Gardening Station

The Gardening Station consists of two metal garden beds filled with soil, two chairs, pots, scoops, small gardening hoe's and fake flowers. We created this area because the children were picking the vegetables too early in the veggie patch. The Garden station will give the children the freedom to plant and pick as they please and allow them to have fun whilst getting their hands dirty.
