Sowing The Seeds

Readers with an interest in outdoor learning may want to take notice of a new publication from Tim Gill. The report, entitled Sowing the Seeds, examines the amount of opportunities that children from London have to spend time in natural green spaces, and argues that regular exposure to such environments is important for children's emotional and physical wellbeing. Those with an interest in forest schools will also find plenty of useful material in the report.

Tim Gill was also the author of the influential 2007 report No Fear, about the importance of risk in childhood - see previous post for details.
