Gardens For Life has been proud to partner with Green Schoolyards America to help schools in their efforts to reopen safely by using outdoor spaces to accommodate physical distancing measures. Repurposing outdoor spaces during the pandemic has the potential to improve learning, health, and engagement with nature.
To help schools and child care centers plan outdoor learning areas during the pandemic, Erica has been providing pro bono landscape design assistance through the COVID-19 Emergency Schoolyard Design Volunteers program.
