Teaching Garden: Lane’s End Homestead moves into town

Designed for use on a daily basis and for special events, the Medicinal Teaching Garden and Outdoor Classroom focuses on experiential nature-play for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-aged children.  The Garden also provides small group gathering space for adult education classes.  Selected plantings from Lane’s End Homestead‘s horticultural collection will be transplanted to the teaching garden, extending opportunities for Atlantans to touch, see, and learn about medicinal plants.

Key Features:

  • variety of teaching plants with medicinal and traditional food uses
  • adventure play for younger children with exploration paths, textured surfaces, sensory plantings, and challenging scenarios
  • lightweight infrastructure (branch tunnels, hogwire trellises, bamboo pole teepees) makes this space adaptable and flexible
