An important New Holland Agriculture venture in the social field. On Tuesday, February 24th the tractor multinational donated the new  “Exploratorium” garden to the  Pioneer School in Basildon (England), where a plant of the New Holland Agricultural has been situated for fifty years. Having moved to a custom-built building in 2009, the Pioneer School is a special institute for children and young people between 3 and 19 years of age with severe learning difficulties. Over the last ten months, the school and the company have wor­ked together in the creation of the garden, an activities area where children can have fun discovering nature in an absolutely safe environment. The area includes playing apparatus that has tractors as a theme, such as tractor-shaped tarpaulins and tunnels made of tyres in addition to carefully-selected plants and trees in such a way as to stimulate the children’s senses of touch and smell.
