The SSFU Learning Garden
The SSFU Learning Garden is a Temporary Educational and Communal Garden at the heart of The Simon Fraser University. The garden was constructed for Sustainable SFU, who secured a short-term agreement for the property. Hundreds of students were consulted on the design and programming for the space. Shifting Growth final garden design took inspiration from Arthur Erikson's modernist sharp structures designed to respond to the natural conditions of the surrounding location. The final garden setting seamlessly merges with Erikson's vision for the award-winning Simon Fraser University Barnaby Mountain campus architectural design. Shifting Growth constructed this garden to have 65 garden beds, secure locking storage, seating for 25+, a three-tiered compost system, a white board and two community boards.
This garden is managed by SSFU - Sustainable SFU: Students for Sustainable Communities: http://sustainablesfu.org/
