​School Site Planning Workshop

Any site can be a great learning tool, but if you think you're ready for some site enhancements or even for a fully developed outdoor classroom, LEAF staff can help. Using the basics of the LEAF School Grounds Development Handbook we will help facilitate your group's planning discussion or provide consultation to help you through the entire site development process. The handbook outlines the steps to keep in mind as you dream up your plans. It includes handy documents that you can use to inventory your site and gather feedback from the people who will be involved.
