I'm from Vancouver Island but now live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I've recently combined my interests in nature-based play with a background in education and am setting up my own business designing and building natural playgrounds. The earthquakes we experienced in Christchurch in 2010 and 2011 drastically altered the landscape, bringing new opportunities. As Christchurch rebuilds, there is a real drive to bring more nature into the inner city and the surrounding (previously residential) areas. I'm involved with several groups keen to see nature-based play figure into the rebuild and am excited to bring new learning and inspiration back to Christchurch.
