Bienenstock Workshops »

All workshops will focus on connecting children to nature when and where they play through the development of natural playgrounds and the simplicity and ease of outdoor curriculum. Workshops offer a variety of topics ranging from outdoor design concepts, talking to your playground inspector, taking advantage of what you already have, and curriculum delivery. The goal is to break down the barriers that limit children from connecting to their natural world and start using your outdoor space as another learning environment to enable and facilitate optimal child development as well as the next generation of environmental stewards.

Workshops are generally 2 hours in length but can be customised and combined to meet the needs of your organization.

Organizations can host a 1 or 2 day workshop to fund raise for the cost a natural playground design.
