''Just wanted to say also that he really loved the session last night and is very into the Our World sessions as well - You are so good at making them feel grown up and engaging them with debates that matter, when we spend the whole time telling him what a kid he is and nagging him to pay attention!!''

Design a Sensory Garden for Stroud

Take part in the design challenge, be part of something marvellous

This coming Saturday, November 7th, a chance to be creative with a purpose! We are running a creative ideas session in the Museum in the Park from 12pm to 3.30pm and all young people age 13-24 are welcome.

We'll be generating ideas for the new Sensory Garden at Stratford Park through art, drama, music and writing, towards a landscape design, sculptures, planting, pathways and invitations to join in the build and planting over the next few years! This is the first of four sessions that make up the consultation phase of the garden development.

Sessions are free, drinks and Fat Toni's pizza provided!

We really hope to see you there - let us know if you think you'll make this session so we know how much pizza to order!

Everybody needs to spend time outside, hanging out with friends or taking time out to enjoy nature, but for disabled people there are many barriers to doing this. We're working with SDC & Allsorts to develop a design for a garden that is accessible to all in Stroud's Stratford park, a place for disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy time together outside. Sponsored by Greggs!
