Iceland Jersey recently assisted a local family in creating a sensory garden for their son after they encountered difficulties obtaining the necessary amount of compost for their garden.

Louise noticed Iceland recently began selling 50L bags of compost and approached the store, which was happy to donate 18 bags of compost to assist in the creation of their son’s perfect sensory garden.

The primary objective of a sensory garden is to stimulate and engage all five basic senses: sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. Not only does this type of garden connect people to nature, but it also encourages people to become more aware of their surroundings and their responses to them through the use of mindfulness principles. Spending time in a sensory garden can also improve your mood, alleviate stress, and help you relax.

We hope Louise and her family enjoy their new garden!
