Hidden Hollow at Heritage Museums and Gardens began as a dry, un-programmed kettle hole and is now one of the first certified Nature Explore Classrooms in New England. Surrounded by lush groves of rhododendrons, children can build forts, eat blueberries, explore woodland paths, and learn about nature. Each themed area explores motifs in plan and three dimensions – a mushroom stool fairy ring gathering circle, an acorn building block area, pine cone art area and so on. JMMDS teamed up with Vermont artist Barre Pinske to create this unique and inspired garden.
