A Special Garden for Special Children

A special sensory garden for special children is being launched in the Boarding Home for Children with Special Needs with the support of St Elisabeth Convent. This is what Andrey Zhdanovich, the principal of this facility, told us, “The garden will be divided in five parts, each of which will have its own function: development of taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. For instance, the Touch division will contain a contact zoo with goats, rabbits, chicken, and other domestic animals, as well as an area for plants, a sensory path made of tree bark, sand, grains, gravel, and other materials. The Hearing division will have a fountain and bird feeders.”
