A NEW garden has been opened by children at a nursery in Wokingham in time for the summer months.

Children from The Oak Tree Nursery in Finchampstead unveiled the ‘Oak Tree Oasis’ garden to their families.

The garden contains a new shed, planters, a growing patch and water butts all designed to help the environment thrive.

Joanna Allen-Dann, Manager of The Oak Tree Nursery, said: “We had a wonderful day in the sunshine unveiling the new garden area, and can’t wait for all the memories that will be made there.

“Tending to the herbs and vegetables will not only be extremely rewarding but will help to teach the children responsibility in caring for the natural world.”

To reveal the new area children and their families gathered in the garden to watch the Childbase Partnership chairmen Mike Thompson cut down a ribbon to declare the space open.

The nursery currently holds an Eco-School’s bronze award for exceptional environmental awareness and conversation. They are introducing new green initiatives to reach the silver accreditation in the internationally recognised scheme.
