Garden with plenty of bite is a monster hit with kids
A DINOSAUR garden created for a town festival has been saved from extinction – and placed into a school playground.
The Jurassic garden was made for the first Macclesfield Garden Festival earlier this summer and featured ancient plants such as magnolia trees and monkey puzzle trees – which have survived from the time of the dinosaurs.
There are also huge dinosaurs made by Macclesfield schoolchildren. Jon Tilley, a garden designer who organised the festival, did not want the dinosaurs and their habitat to become extinct once the festival was over, so organised – with the help of fundraising in the community – to move it all to Broken Cross Primary School for the children to enjoy.
Jon said: “We’re delighted that we could rebuild the garden at Broken Cross Primary School and that the festival can have a lasting legacy. The children can learn more about the plants and dinosaurs.”
