Today we're bringing you an episode from the Biophilic Solutions podcast, because it features one of Serenbe's residents, Sarah Milligan-Toffler. Sarah is the President and CEO of the Children and Nature Network, an organization created by Richard Louv that reconnects kids and fails with nature. In this episode, Sarah and co-hosts Jennifer Walsh and Monica Olsen discuss nature’s impact on brain development in early childhood, ways that we might reimagine the traditional schoolyard, and the historic barriers that have prevented underserved communities from enjoying nature’s benefits. We also dive into the tools that city officials and engaged citizens alike can use to advocate for the rights of all children to play outside.
Enjoy this special interview with our neighbor Sarah.
