Outdoor Learning & Play

All Hands in the Dirt Forum

Learn, network, and share with leaders in the design and programming of children’s outdoor spaces

Led by experts in design and education, All Hands in the Dirt is a forum held at Evergreen Brick Works for sharing innovations and best practices in creating vibrant children's spaces for outdoor learning and play.

Unfortunately, we will not be hosting an All Hands in the Dirt Forum in 2016. Sign up for our Outdoor Classroom Newsletter to receive information about our 2017 Forum.

Our previous Forums have offered a unique variety of presentations, workshops, hands-on activities and small-group discussions that address key challenges facing designers, educators and administrators, including:

  • Addressing questions of risky play in the outdoors
  • Increasing and improving learning opportunities in children’s outdoor spaces
  • Unpacking policies and practices for children’s outdoor spaces
  • Designing for child development and increased physical activity
  • Evaluation and assessment for teaching outdoors
