Sensory Garden and Workshop Space

Sensory Garden and Workshop Space

In April, the Trade Fair GrootGroenPlus with Peter Vanlaerhoven and Pascala Matthijsen from Lowgardens Nurseries sat down to discuss a new development for the 2019 event.

The reality will be a special garden for the visually impaired: a Sensory Garden. Pascale and Peter will use their experience and knowledge to create the design of this sensory garden, which you can visit during the trade fair from 2 - 4 October.

Special Care Garden

The idea is to show that it is possible to use regular grown products from participants to create special care gardens. Within this design, there is also a seating area for 30 people and a 75-inch TV screen.

Other participants can also book this space. These are in fact two new parts at one location, which will help promote the products of these participants. It includes very valuable additions of application and sharing knowledge.

Plant Consciousness

A garden with its layout, has great social value, and will lead to more plant consciousness. This will also turn it into a nice place to invite purchasers for public green and health care.

Lowgardens Nurseries has experience with this kind of gardens and will control the project. They also installed a care garden at OCMW in Rijkevorsel. That garden focuses on stimulating sick people and those with dementia to go outside.
