By American Society of Landscape Architects – “Asphalt to Ecosystems: Design Ideas for Schoolyard Transformation”

This Book Received the Honor Award from ASLA.  It’s definitely worth a read!

This is a comprehensive & inspiring book about the international green schoolyard movement and a call to action for improvements to children’s school environments to enhance their learning, play, and ecology. In the book there is celebration of 150 successful examples around the world. Compiled from the author’s decade of experience and diligent research the book speaks to both community members as well as design professionals.  It has an abundance of great design ideas, practical tips, and strategies for engaging school communities as stewards of their shared public space. When you think about “school grounds,” what type of image first comes to mind?  For many people, school grounds are places covered by paved surfaces. That needs to change!  Your children would clearly benefit from access to quality backyard playground equipment at school as well as at home and in your local parks.
