Show Notes

Joining me in this episode is Merril Miceli of Forest Folk, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA. We talk advocating for children and risky play, and the business of setting up a Forest School in the face of heavy regulations. This was such a great episode to put together, and I'm so glad to have connected with Merril. She is so good at being agile and responsive to challenges and opportunities in terms of her vision and model for Forest Folk. An essential episode for those having to think outside the box when it comes to setting up their own outdoor nursery.
