Creating a Cumbrae Sensory Garden


On Monday afternoon Kenneth visited Millport Field Studies Centre, which is dedicated to the provision of an environment which enhances the educational experience.


NatureScot provided funding to help create a sensory garden, consisting of five sections each dedicated to one the senses, with plants corresponding to each.


As part of the Volunteering Matters’ Action Earth campaign, which encourages local volunteers to respond to climate change, the aim is to build biodiversity and wellbeing.


Kenneth said:


“A sensory garden can be especially beneficial with neurodivergent conditions, such as autism and dementia and the sensory garden will be a great resource for islanders with those conditions and their carers.”
