High School Student Installs Sensory Garden at Ridge Elementary SchoolThrough the creativity and inspiration of Longwood High School sophomore Gabrielle Noll, students at Ridge Elementary School have a new colorful, interactive sensory garden to visit in the school’s courtyard.

As part of her Girl Scout Gold Award, Gabrielle created a special sensory garden featuring therapeutic and tactile features for children with special needs providing inclusion opportunities for students of all abilities.

Gabriella returned to her hometown elementary school to install the unique garden.

“I went to Ridge Elementary School and I knew there was a need for this type of area,” said Gabrielle.  “I wanted to provide a space for all students to enjoy.”

The sensory garden features include a counting frame, wind chimes, a water feature, tic tac toe board, a bird bath for observations of wildlife, seating, and a stepping stone pathway with colorful artwork designed by students.
