Bastama School, Final Design Site 1. (Day 12)

Students were given final design tasks today, 3 different client profiles at 3 separate sites:


Client profile 1, Bastama School Gardens (semi-fictitious):

  • 600 students, ages 6-18 (grade levels 6-12)
  • Heard about greenhouses, but not sure where to start / how to use / build / operate
  • Not sure where best site for garden plot would be
  • Want to integrate gardening into learning cirriculummn, including science, ecology, maths, geography, and history
  • Would like students to be able to taste what they grow, from plot to plate
  • Would like more trees on-site to create areas for students and parents to relax & enjoy
  • Would like to include eggs in school lunches to boost children's nutrition

Design Brief:

  • Create school garden that is productive, functional and educational. 
  • Incorporate chickens & a greenhouse into your design.  
  • Find ways to link to link the garden design to the classroom & cirriculum.
