Sustainability in a historic Lake District Garden.

The resources below have been produced to help you explore the Brockhole Kitchen Garden with your learners.

The resources focus on the concept of sustainability. Through exploring the garden’s history and modern-day use, your learners will find out how sustainable gardening principles have been applied and used.

They are intended to provide opportunities for cross-curricular learning. The information and activities use history as a starting point for exploring History, English, Geography and Art. 

The resource provides a series of activities through which your learners will explore :

  • The history of Brockhole – who it was built by and why
  • Thomas Mawson – landscape architect and Brockhole garden designer
  • Garden features – how they combine with each other, and with the house, to make up a whole
  • The key moments in Brockhole’s garden development
