School Learning Garden
Our vision for Canada is… one where we can go outside and enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings that are found everywhere in this amazing country. We wanted to add to our school yard by building a garden where everyone could go out and enjoy it and learn in/from it.
We built garden boxes (five 8×5 foot planters) and we are planting perennial flowers (pollinator friendly plants). We are working with local leaders and organizations to also help us include connections to the Indigenous community. Eventually, we would like to expand our outdoor learning space to include a natural playground.
Reflection & Celebration
We would say that our biggest challenge, in the beginning, was the proposed scope of the project. We have since broken the project down to be completed over a few years. This year, we secured some funds to help us build our planter boxes.
