Landscapes for Learners: School Ground Guidelines.
This report presents guidelines for establishing the educational rationale for Landscapes for Learners, a school grounds development initiative designed to support the curriculum while protecting children from health risks and providing high quality space in the community for education and recreation. The guidelines link the value of educational landscapes to the mandated British Columbia school curriculum. The recommendations outline a pathway to change, including the removal of barriers for school community-based initiatives on school grounds. The appendices describe the maintenance and design parameters of those landscapes and provide helpful tips on the school- based process of project implementation in maintenance, design, and activities surrounding school community participation.
