COGdesign volunteer designer David McCoy of Geographia Landscape Design has completed a design for The Codman Academy, a public school in Dorchester designated an Expeditionary Learning Mentor School. The school recently expanded to serve K-8 students, and needed a design for a 2000 square foot child-friendly outdoor activity space reflecting the school’s emphasis on nature and creative investigation.

McCoy created a design featuring a gazebo, a water play area, native plants, and plenty of room to run and explore. The extensive plant list features rugged natives and selections including a red maple, Aronia arbutifolia “Brilliantissima,” and Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker’s Red.’ Read the entire Codman Academy Plant List (PDF download).
