Canopy was involved in the landscape design for Nelson Central School’s Treemendous School Makeovers submission late last year. This joint initiative between the Mazda Foundation and Project Crimson aims at teaching children the importance of the environment and caring for its native habitats. After being successful and receiving a $10,000 grant, Nelson Central School, Canopy and a few other fantastic local businesses got to work making our design a reality. This involved an amphitheatre for outdoor teaching, a relaxation zone, sensory zone, and various houses for native insects and birds.
After weeks of working bees with the help of volunteers the sensory outdoor classroom at Nelson Central School was completed this month and we went along to the final working bee and opening day. Great to see such a turnout and to give back to the community!
