George Heriot’s Philosophy Trail

The Thinking Garden

Welcome to this section of the George Heriot’s Philosophy Trail.

This section of the trail is all about smell.

Each month there will be different activities for you to try – this could be a plant or object to smell and think about or a thought from a famous Philosopher giving you a chance to explore the World of Philosophy. Feel free to pick and choose which activities you do. This month’s theme is NATURE.

We hope you enjoy watching the garden grow, using your sense of smell and learning more about Philosophers!
