We were first inspired by the richness of our own childhoods that were filled with play in the natural world. It was easy to see that these experiences for children were disappearing. We could not imagine our lives without growing up in the world we grew up in. Then our eyes fell upon the work of Geoffrey and Renate Caine, David Sobell, Richard Louv, and Bill Plotkin.
Their work fully supported our vision to reimagine the world where children once again have the rich experiences in nature that are essential to the growth of healthy lives. Children who experience a world of play and nature will become advocates of the Earth, and develop a sense of being included in a vibrant Earth community. Such a community is where one’s imagination has legitimate power to co-create a healthy world.
We are passionate that these are elements we need for this human existence to turn towards resiliency and alignment with what is needed to be healthy and whole citizens of this planet and eager for your children and community to join us.
