Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation Community GreenShed and Garden

We believe that everyone should have access to spaces that are beautiful, sustainable and built with with people in mind, as well as being highly functional and enduring.

We have all heard statistics like ‘children spend 6 minutes a day on outdoor activities’ and ‘nature is just the space we walk through on the way to the bus.’

We help you create spaces for children that encourage them to get outside and engage with their surroundings and each other.

This engaged activity has many benefits:

  • Reduced obesity
  • Decreased symptoms of ADHD/ADD
  • Greater focus in general
  • Improved mental health
  • Increased creativity
  • Better relationships with classmates and teachers

As well, it fosters a sense of stewardship and connection with nature, something we all need if we’re going to move move forward together on this planet.

We work with:

  • Schools
  • Pre-School and Day Care Centres
  • Recreational Facilities
  • Community Groups
  • Environmental Groups
  • Non-profits

Our designs include:

  • School ground design
  • Play area design
  • Edible landscapes
  • Outdoor classrooms
  • Community school gardens
  • Interpretive and educational trails
  • Recreational facilities

Our process is collaborative, engaging and inclusive and results in a plan that is broadly supported by staff, students, parents and other users.

We have experience dealing with the funding challenges that often accompany school grounds and community projects. We can provide support through all stages of the project from idea development, site selection, grant writing, programming, design, installation and ongoing maintenance.
