At Wildwood School in LA, we were also inspired by Richard Louv's "Last Child in the Woods" and included an Outdoor Classroom and Big Yard Woods in our strategic plan for the elementary school. Now, two years later, children make homemade salads harvested fresh from the garden, learn lessons surrounded by the vibrant greens they've helped plant and nurture, and they play amongst trees and natural materials in the Big Yard Woods.
"How the young respond to nature, and how they raise their own children, will shape the configurations and conditions of our cities, homes—our daily lives."
—Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods
