From Norway to Coquitlam

It started with a short film on Vimeo about children exploring the outdoors in Norway. Since then I’ve been catching bits and bytes about the forest kindergarten/outdoor education programmes around the world on blogs, newspaper articles, Facebook and even Twitter.

A Visit to Colony Farm

Any time of year and in any weather, Colony Farms is an interesting place to visit for a walk along the river or through the community gardens. Summertime is the peak period for viewing the garden plots before you head off down the trails to walk by the water, enjoy the peaceful setting and watch for wildlife. You might even want to take part in a game of “launch a stick into the river and watch it float away”.
