For the past 20 some years, I've worked in some form of environmental education, including international environmental education and conservation; children's gardening; and natural resources education. I have a Ph.D. from Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. My research focused on children's sense of place in three communities of New Mexico. I teach occasionally at the University of Colorado and consult as well. The rest of my time is spent with my 4 year old son. I just started a blog address a potential niche in family gardening (with children). If anyone knows of similar sites or has suggestions for ways to build this, I'd love feedback!

Yours Truly Friends.
It depends what you mean by a forest kindergarten. There's a lot of interpretation over such a term. Over here in the UK it means weekly visits to a woodland for play by pre-schoolers. Is this what you had in mind, or a pre-school that's outdoors 80% time all year round?
Hi Tori! Welcome to the forum. I really enjoyed reading your blog. I'm passionate about gardening, as are many members of the community. We've discussed school gardens. I wonder if a general gardening topic is in order?
I know you'll add a lot to the forum - your bio is rich and I see you've joined some groups. I hope you continue to make yourself at home and find this a rich source of resources and camaraderie. (As a side note, I also blog about gardening, among other things, at www.slowfamilyonline.com. Just wrote about seed saving.) Cheers!
