Gardens in the city offer solutions to the real world problems of biodiversity loss, pollution, fresh food supplies, warming environments, well-being and much more.
Through a Design Thinking approach students will develop an understanding of the challenges of keeping our cities green, explore a variety of vertical garden designs and work collaboratively to construct a sustainable school garden for a small space.
This workshop engages students with 21st Thinking Skills and creates a small space garden for your school!
- Students will learn about the amazing benefits of gardens to our cities and undertake the design process addressing the challenge of sustainable garden design for your school considering site opportunities, limitations and local environmental issues
- They will examine and build sustainable urban garden designs in the Botanic Gardens, learning about the design features and the plants that flourish in them.
- Students will also create a garden design concept for your school and an eye-catching poster to pitch your design to your school Principal!
