Designing Educational Outdoors
Big or small any outdoor space can cater for your welbeing and educational needs if thoughtfully designed.
Sankofa to Nature team counts with the experience of providing outdoor services and the skills to materialise them, using natural and/or reused materials, preferably local sourced and organic.
We work with small and medium scale projects and can advise and get you in touch with other professionals working in larger scale.
The service, after a free initial consultation, can include plans, graphics of details, images, some materials such as plants, seeds, reused wood etc, installation and follow up (for some projects we might be able to provide maintenance on a regular basis).
Outdoor classrooms: engaging and versatile areas to be used for a diverse range of activities, from regular academic activities to gardening and all of the Forest School skills.
Family play and relax areas: these are gardens -or sections in them, where the family meets to engage in games, activities and spend time in fresh air without living the house.
kitchen/permaculture gardens: Even in a small space we can help you to plan and develop a garden that provides you with edible and medicinal plants which are both beautiful and productive all year round, while learning and experimenting.
mud kitchens: For spaces to be used for the younger ones a mud kitchen is a wonder of learning and experiencing the world through the senses and use of imagination. This equipment is tailor made with only natural materials.
