Outdoor Classroom

The garden is a safe place,
a benevolent setting where everyone is welcome.

Plants are non-judgmental, non-threatening and
non-discriminating.

They respond to care, not to the strengths and weaknesses
of the person providing it.

It does not matter whether one is black or white,
has been to kindergarten or college,
is poor or wealthy,
healthy or ill.

Plants will thrive when given careful attention….
Thus in a garden one can take the first steps towards self-confidence.
