We are currently investigating designs with input from the university students and the community at large.
These plans, as well as those from other students and the interested public, will be taken into consideration when the design is finalized. In the meantime, they provide an inspiring look into the possibilities of the project.
Yorklands Master Plan – Natalie Gibbs – landscaping student at University of Guelph
Project Haven – University of Waterloo design students
Solar Greenhouse – Travis Cranmer
What projects would you like to see happen at the Yorklands Green Hub site?
Over the years we have had various verbal proposals and now we have a project application to post on our website so that people can see the ideas possible for various parts of Parcel Two.
