Lucy guides the teachers, school and the children in creating an edible and biodiverse school garden including how to develop 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, bush craft skills and sensory awareness games. Lucy also works with living willow structures to create domes, archways or tunnels in your school grounds.
Lucy is co-founder of Growing Wild - 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."
"We had a great day with Lucy. She was very organised and knowledgeable. She had a lovely manner with the children, who were delighted to be able to get answers to all their questions about bugs and plants. We now have a great plan for our school garden too. We will definitely be asking Lucy to come back in the future." - Lusk JNS, Dublin
