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.”
“If children do not grow up knowing about nature, they will not understand it…they won’t protect it. And if they don’t protect it, who will?” SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH Join Islington’s award-winning charity The Garden Classroom (TGC) for this project, celebrating TGC’s 10 years of delivering learning in natural environments.
