Depaving Paradise at Brooklands School

​What does it take to transform an old, unused basketball court into a beautiful outdoor classroom? Brookland’s School in Winnipeg was wondering that very thing, and on May 28th they found out.
The plan for the day was ambitious: Rip up 150 m2 of asphalt (mostly by hand), build 15 raised garden beds and fill them with soil, install benches between the beds, plant a native garden including a strawberry patch, lay down mulch for the walking areas, and plant a special tree in memory of a special teacher.
