Fall is a magical time in the garden with the changing of leaves and the calm feeling created by the gardens slowing down getting ready for winter. Your students will enjoy spending a day in the garden experiencing this magical time. We will explore the gardens looking for hidden gnomes. Our imaginations will run wild building fairy houses in the gardens with natural material for our magical friends. Students will create a miniature sized gardens to bring a bit of magic home.
