Recently our founding Director and Head Designer, Steve Webb, was invited to present at the NSW Horticulture Therapy Conference. His talk outlined the various distinctions in our minds between what is considered 'nature', a playground or an aesthetically pleasing garden. He then shared our philosophy of nature and play overlapping. He asked those attending to consider blurring borders and integrating spaces for multiple functions. Steve highlighted the mental and physical health benefits of unstructured play in natural outdoor environments, and the importance of unmediated interaction with nature in developing children’s empathic concern for global ecosystems.
