Although various forms of greenery are appealing and interesting as an aesthetic decoration, its existence in accordance with the principles of sensory integration and sustainable development requires a greater degree of activity.
On the green surface area of the Škurinje neighbourhood, a more experimental form of sensory garden is being arranged, consisting of the so-called composting garden, tall flowerbeds and sensory trails for children. The purpose of the construction is for compost to be produced in an outdoor environment adjacent to the ground that is used to grow fruit in the garden on elevated flower beds, and the sensory paths to be adjacent to the plants where they can be sensed. Children’s development depends on the sensations obtained through the contact of their feet with different materials. Thus, this space, when arranged and put into function, becomes a point of education, sensitisation on the issue of sustainable development, as well as a small social area.
