We are trying to assist disadvantaged communities in South Africa and part of our efforts is to help their schools as well. As part of the effert of beautifying the schools, we are looking for plants that are known to enhance learning so that they could be more functional than just the asetic beauty.

Kindly help or advise in this area. We would most definately appreciate your expert advice.

Many Thanks

I would suggest using a variety of plants with different textures, colors, aromas, heights, shapes, and sizes, to provide as much sensory stimulation as possible. By using a variety of plants, you'll help stimulate children's natural curiosity and provide them with abundant opportunities for learning. Provide seeds so children can appreciate the wonder of plants' life cycles.

Good luck in your endeavors. They sound wonderful.
