Urban Sense Project

A group of children sit in a garden. An adult is in front of them speaking.

The Urban Sense Project by Four Youth supports early childhood and youth development by giving students the opportunity to connect more with nature. The garden will facilitate increased interaction with the outdoors in a fun and interactive way to promote both physical and mentally health. We are creating an interactive green space in a former brownfield where students feel safe while exploring their environment. The Urban Sense project will provide students the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of experiences including a wildlife sensory garden, bird sanctuary equipped with a wildlife camera trap, a music wall, and a life-sized chess board/outdoor classroom. These experiences combined with our environmental science and art curriculum provide our students the opportunity to learn more about their local ecological systems and our environment in general.
