Tables and Seating for Children and Adults
The garden is an outdoor classroom. Allow students time to observe and record important data in their journals while in the garden. Tables will facilitate recording information about facts gathered during garden exercises. Tables also provide workspace for planting seeds in containers. Garden benches, where students can sit and read or just enjoy the garden, will enhance the environment.
Seating also provides a gathering place for adults to interact with students, a teaching station for small group instruction and a place to observe the garden in action. A 2 inch x 8 inch cap on raised beds doubles as extra seating. Add an overhead shade structure for sun protection on hot days.
