Children with autism, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, sensory processing and integration disorders can find the traditional school setting challenging.  The creation of a sensory focused garden will provide sensory and horticultural therapy for all abilities.

The Garden of the 5 Senses

Many children with autism, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, sensory processing and integration disorders can find the traditional school setting challenging.  At the Biddeford Primary School, we would like to provide sensory and horticultural therapy opportunities for students of all abilities.  Our courtyard, located in the center of our school, has the potential to be a place of sensory stimulation, integration, learning, exploration, and solace.  Educators, community members and child advocates have collaborated for nearly a year to thoughtfully plan a setting to meet various needs of our diverse population.  Please consider donating to the needs of the children in our community.

BPS Sensory Garden Plan

Please...TOUCH, TASTE, SMELL, HEAR and SEE while in our sensory garden!  

SEE! HEAR! The artistic use of color is planned to visually stimuate 
the eye. Wind and water elements will provide natural sounds as well
as the implementation of musical elements.
Biddeford Primary School Sensory Garden Features

Taste:  Our design plan includes raised portable wooden planters and
opportunities for vertical gardening.  Students can grow edible
plants, vegetables and herbs.

Vertical Gardening

TOUCH and SMELL:  We have incorporated planters to feature plants that provide touchable textures and low allergen fragrances.
Touch me! Smell me!
                          Raised beds for all abilities.
PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Love, the students, families, educators, and community 
members of the Biddeford Primary School.
