From the Landscape Institute (LI) – Creating Healthy Places publication, there are 5 principles LI believe are essential to the creation of healthy places:

1. Healthy places improve air, water and soil quality, incorporating measures that help us adapt to, and where possible mitigate, climate change
2. Healthy places help overcome health inequalities and can promote healthy lifestyles
3. Healthy places make people feel comfortable and at ease, increasing social interaction and reducing anti-social behaviour, isolation and stress
4. Healthy places optimise opportunities for working, learning and development
5. Healthy places are restorative, uplifting and healing for both physical and mental health conditions

Students explore these principles by using Woodrush High School to form a wellbeing community garden. The process requires work to gather and identify the community requirement, define the scope of proposal, generate concept and Sketch design proposal liaise with stakeholders

The final design proposition is visualised and details are compiled in a design document to the school in order to progress with the proposal to liaise with Landscape Architect and/or Contractor with a construction package.
