Connecting urban children and families with nature

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge visits TGC at King Henry’s Walk Garden 15th January 2019.

A special visit today from HRH The Duchess of Cambridge highlighted The Duchess’s passion for nature and the outdoors and as a mother of three young children she is keen to encourage a love of the natural world.

The Duchess asked the children from St Jude and St Paul’s Primary School

“Do you prefer to learn inside the classroom or outside in a woodland such as this?” and the children replied enthusiastically “In a woodland!.”

Later whilst making pizzas the Duchess brought up the subject of outdoor learning again with the children and asked whether there was a preference for learning outside the classroom or learning inside and said

“I think that’s where George and Charlotte would love to be, learning outside… it’s much better outside.”
