Proposals for First Adventure and Georges Vanier :

In October of 2018, Wentworth Landscapes and Landscape Ontario hosted teams of landscape design students from Algonquin College, Niagara Parks School of Horticulture and University of Guelph to travel to Belleville to participate in a design charrette with students and teachers from First Adventure Child Development Centre and Georges Vanier Catholic School. Using the input and ideas generated during the charrette, the teams created the final proposals below for a new natural playground and schoolyard.
