In this field trip, travel to recently-greened school grounds in West and North Vancouver for on-the-ground inspiration and understanding of what it takes to develop a successful green school grounds program.

You will learn about the process of greening school grounds from design to installation. Hosted by Evergreen’s Executive Director Cameron Collyer and design consultant Caron Cheng, we will visit the outdoor classroom at École Pauline Johnson, the nature and active playground at Highlands Elementary, and the school ground market garden at Sutherland Secondary.
