Today we had a visit from Anneke and Ally from Wellington Botanical Gardens. They showed us different plants. We learnt lots about different plants and their uses. They were keen to get our ideas for the new children's garden in the Wellington Botanical Gardens.
"The garden will be a learning space where children will:
traditional plant skills and uses learn out about the medicinal properties of native plants find with plants important to other cultures. work
Wellington Botanic Garden will maintain the Children's Garden, and provide an educator to work with school groups and visitors.”

Here are some of our ideas for the children's garden:
Thank you Anneke and Ally for talking to us. We are enjoying our growing inquiry! Also a big thank you to Sophie (Matilda's mum) for arranging this for us.
