Brightside Demonstration Garden â€“ SWT Design
The Brightside Demonstration Garden was intended to serve as an outdoor classroom for urban residents showcasing natural urban ecosystems and regional materials. Located at the major intersection of Kingshighway and Vandeventer, the garden is highly visible, and therefore serves to foster environmental awareness. The site features a microcosm of the regionâ€™s wetland, glade, prairie and woodland habitats â€“ all designed to educate visitors on the importance of native plant materials and sustainable design. To that end, educational signage coupled with donor opportunities serve as public educational tools and bring the value of the garden to light.
