How did this awesome greenhouse originate? Was it an original design or is it a kit you can purchase? Were the plants able to grow via the indirect light coming through windows or is there another source not overly visible in the pictures. Really cool!

Thanks Sean and Kierna for your comments. The greenhouse is a cheap kit which can be found in many garden centres. It's not especially robust when used outside so I think using it indoors is quite a clever move. The children like it so much that I think the plan is to leave it up and decorate in line with other projects an activities as time goes by. What was clear was how proud the children were of both the greenhouse, the activities and the visits to Duthie Park. It's always good when children are inspired.
