UBC Outdoor Classroom Charrette

Name: UBC Outdoor Classroom Charrette

Time & Date: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 8:30AM – 12:00PM

Location: Lillooet Room (3rd floor) Irving K. Barber Center, 1961 East Mall

The event will be a visioning design charrette with the goal of designing an outdoor classroom behind the McMillan building that can be used by different departments and faculties to teach environmental education. We welcome the UBC community to take part in creating this learning landscape.

The UBC Outdoor Classroom, which will be designed as an addition to the McMillan Orchard Garden, is not the first outdoor classroom designed and built on the UBC camous. The original Neville Scarfe Children’s Garden was designed and built in 1987 as a collaborative project involving students, faculty, and staff of the Faculty of Education and the Landscape Architecture Program in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. The garden existed for three short years until a construction project for the Scarfe seismic upgrading and the construction of a new wing for the Education Library displaced the garden. We would like to recreate the beloved outdoor classroom and give it a new life. The project will be a collaboration between the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems. Please join us in this journey.
