"Children are born naturalists.  They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them." ~The Audubon Nature Preschool

Before the dream of Habitat Landscapes, Nancy Payne worked for REAL School Gardens designing and overseeing the installation of learning gardens on the campuses of schools in the Dallas area.  Harry C. Withers Elementary School was one of the school gardens that Nancy designed.  It is a beautiful space where children can enjoy a shade habitat and pond, a vegetable garden and an outdoor classroom.  Check out this beautiful garden the children get to enjoy every day!
