This research builds on the Edinburgh Beltane project led by Dr. Jenny Roe from OPEN Space/Heriot Watt University which began to investigate opportunities for and barriers to nature play by young children and their carers, from the local community within a designated play area. The current project looks in more depth at the content of nature play and the balance between impact and nature conservation in the context of a botanical garden.
