Ecole Pauline Johnson Co-design becomes a landscape!!

We are very grateful for Ecole Pauline Johnson for inviting us to attend their school garden opening.  We were involved with this project at the beginning to engage the students in co-design.  They learned about the ecological web of a west coast ecosystem and their relation to it and then they did co-design drawings which were given to the landscape architect.  The landscape architect created a plan with the student's design input and the new landscape was made collaboratively
