Natural Playscapes Workshop
On Friday, Stan and Grandma Sally took time out of their entire day to watch all the kids for me so I could attend the Natural Playscapes Workshop by Rusty Keeler, a designer from upstate New York. I traveled to Hesston, KS where I participated in a wonderfully organized event; it included Keeler's photo presentation and walking tours to the Arboretum and an inter-generational childcare center with a natural playground. I even got to speak with Rusty Keeler and address some of the design issues I was having, as the group took time to dream up their own natural play grounds. I left the workshop with new ideas, a bag full of resources, and an autographed book. It was a great day!
