Planned design for the outdoor learning space

David Thompson School future Indigenous garden space

Future outdoor learning space location

David Thompson School would like to design and install an outdoor Indigenous learning space. The garden will be a place of gathering for students, staff, and community members to come together, learn about Indigenous plants and traditions, reflect, and relax. This area will be designed as a circle to promote sharing.

The garden will be used as part of regular school and extra-curricular programming. The final design will be done in consultation with students, teachers, local Elders, parents and other community members, and Calgary Board of Education’s Indigenous Education department and facilities team.

We hope to have the Indigenous Garden ready for use by September 2023.
