Alastair spent much of his school career gazing out the window and being told by teachers that 'the answer's not out there'. He's now leads Grounds for Learing, the Scottish charity that helps schools and early years settings develop and use their outoor spaces for learning, fun, sustainability, sociability, play and other good things.
Nice to see someone from Scotland on here. I am just starting up my own organisation in Edinburgh, Scotland, running in school workshops in primart schools, helping teachers with eco schools and taking after school nature clubs and bush craft activities. At the moment I am working alone and am gradually building up work.I have to say that I love it and it is amazing to see the enjoyment on the children's faces after a workshop outdoors in the forest. It would be great to stay in touch and share ideas if you would be willing.
