Lucy guides the teachers, school and the children in creating an edible school garden and a variety of native habitats in the school grounds such as native woodlands, heritage orchards, wildlife ponds, wildflower meadows, compost areas, and living willow structures. The children learn all about how to grow their own food, native trees, what plants and animals live in our various native habitats, through practical, hands-on projects and cross-curricular activities.
Lucy also offers Forest Schools based woodland immersion programmes, day trips to woodlands including pond dips, bug hunts, bushcraft skills and sensory awareness games.
Lucy is co-founder of GROWing Gardens - a Kildare-based environmental education company, specialising in organic school gardens, community gardens, local organic food projects, biodiversity & native habitat projects and forest schools.
"A great day and opportunity for our 6th class pupils to plant and weave a willow structure in our school garden."
