A huge scheme has been launched under the direction of the Government and many local councils to fund the installation of scientific gardens in schools.
If a school can find a place for a sustainable, scientific, ecological nature garden, many local authorities provide funding for the project.
Robert has both silver and gold awards at Regents Park and Chelsea Flower Shows for his permacultural nature gardens.
These gardens demonstrate the principles of sustainability and ecology and at the same promote scientific curiosity in both old and young alike.
Roberts natural woodland gardens will aid in the development of children's scientific skills and help them to recognise the importance of different types of animal, plant and insect habitats.
Examples of different habitats include
The aim is to create habitats that attract invertebrates, birds, amphibians and mammals.
Scientific learning will be facilitated by custom design features such as teaching cabins, learning areas and work tables.
These can be located on the ground or on aerial platforms set amongst the trees.
