By Morgan Where will we be this year? As I write this, Suzanna and I are both close to home. I’m teaching in Middlebury and she’s keeping our social media a fire where others can warm up. I’m planning the first pop-up adventure playground in my own...
It was a warm evening in Vancouver and I had just been picked up in the little yellow tour car (with a surprising amount of leg room) and I was heading into the little known space of playwork. This was an adventure that I never thought that I’d have the chance...
By Morgan Play has a way of bringing great people together. On 2nd September we welcomed Ricky to the tour and yellow car. He’s been a member of our Board since 2013, and was curious to see what we were up to in Canada firsthand. On his third day, we participated in...

In 2013, Erin Davis arrived at The Land with a film crew. Suzanna drove over for a visit, and put Erin and I on the phone to say hello. We didn’t get long to talk though, as Erin had to go suddenly as the children were “launching the boat.” The...
Happy New Year! We all have our favourite holidays, and this one is mine – well, tied with my birthday, of course! It’s a little cheesy to say that this is a time of reflection, a chance to consider the year ending and make renewed commitments to the one opening...
