Conservation Services has constructed many wildlife gardens and dozens of Outdoor Classrooms (Or "An Seomra Glas") in school gardens around Ireland. In addition Andy Booth has been a judge in the School Garden section of the Meath Pride of Place competition from 2007 to 2011.
With fresh new ideas and cost-effective options we can construct
- nature ponds
- habitat boxes (bug hibernation, bird, bat, hedgehog)
- nature tables
- sensory gardens
- butterfly gardens
- extra-large 3-bay community-composters
- recycled plastic raised beds
- giant xylophones
- outside black boards
- park benches and tables
- willow domes
- and much more...just ask
With all this you are sure to attract wildlife to you garden, your school and increase environmental knowledge and understandings of the workings of nature.
Ideal for school gardens, an outdoor classroom provides the ideal setting for hands-on learning by children about the environment.The standard Outdoor Classroom contains:
- A U-shaped seating area for the whole class (approx 3 m
- A large low-level nature table
- 1 large outdoor blackboard
- 1 bird box with birdcam
- 1 bug hibernation box
It will seat an average sized class. They can be tailored to suit your individual school's needs.
