Kwantlen University Exam
We are proud to host the Kwantlen Polytech Landscape Design II examination, taking place on our patio facades. Think “Container Garden Wars” only it’s to pass an exam!
To add a little pressure and truly put skills to the test, West Coast Gardens will be live-filming the exam and inviting the public to watch as students work on-the-clock to design to the best of their ability.
Students will be put in groups of 3-4, they will be set up with a display patio, and have limited time to select the containers and plants they wish to work with. The exam will start at 9am and will finish at 1pm.
This will be the first time Kwantlen Polytechnic University has ever incorporated this type of practical element to their landscape design program. They have traditionally had students design on paper. We’re excited to partner with KPU to enable to students to do both.
Students will explore and be marked on their conventional and sustainable approaches to landscape design challenges associated with residential sites and small scale spaces.
Come and join us! It’ll be great entertainment and it may spark some creativity for your own container gardening.
