Here is another fun project I’ve been working on. A map for the Children’s section of our community garden. For those of you who’ve followed my blog you will know that I love being in the garden, and a few years back, with help from the city, some neighbours and myself started a neighbourhood run community garden. The main part of the garden is for members, but the kids garden is for EVERYONE.
This year we are adding a map to the Children’s garden to make it more inviting to everyone in the community and to help teach kids about what is growing. There is a blank section on the sign where our children’s garden coordinator will put information and activities for visitors to do. This is such a fun garden, it’s a lot of work for our garden executive (all volunteer!) but I know how loved it is by everyone in the community!
Because this map is for a children’s garden, I went with a more playful picture book type feel for the art. I also hid a lot of garden visitors that you might see in our garden. Hopefully the kids will have fun with it!
