 A Journey through the Garden of Life

Sheri’s Garden was unveiled at Bromham Lower School in Bromham Beds on March 22 2010.  Its innovative design means that it can be used by the school for lessons and also by the village’s two churches for services or bible readings.   It is a community project as well and as such will be open to anyone in the village to relax in and enjoy.
The garden is in the form of a journey which moves the visitor from one area to the other with plenty of seating for rest and relaxation on the route.  This represents the path through life for Christians and is great fun for the kids.   We start the journey with water and wine represented by a grapevine-covered pergola and a bubble fountain.  From here the path leads to the main classroom circle; surrounded by peanut benches this space is marked by a Fish mosaic in the centre and surrounded by scented and textured plants.
From here the path meanders to the Earth and Sun circle where a compass star is set into the paving and is overlooked by a mighty oak.  Continuing on, the next circle has a butterfly mosaic in the centre representing the wildlife we share our world with.  The path now disappears behind the oak and then starts the journey back to the start.
As the planting develops, the garden will become a haven from the rigours of life, somewhere to ponder the meaning of life and something that will teach the young about nature and the joys of gardening.
