Woodlands Community Garden: Sensory area

(North Yorkshire)

We want to create an inspiring and beautiful sensory garden behind Woodlands Church. This would be a resource for the whole community to enjoy, including local families, church members, residents of Tate House (RNIB home), visually impaired adults from Foresight, and groups from the Fairfax Community Centre and the Surestart Centre.

Our goals:

  • Design, build and plant an inspiring sensory garden.
  • Improve existing pathways to provide good access for wheelchair users and the visually impaired.

Where the money will go

The development of Woodlands Community Garden has the support of the church, local families and community groups.
