PlayGroundology on CBC’s Maritime Noon

Today, I’m an in studio guest with Norma Lee MacLeod, host of CBC Radio’s Maritime Noon. We’ll be talking playgrounds and I’m looking forward to hearing from listeners in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia about their perspectives on the state of public play spaces. If you’re a PlayGroundology friend in the Maritimes, tune in for the conversation. We’ll also be giving away a copy of Brenda Biondo’s beautiful photography book – Once Upon a Playground.

I’ve cobbled together a few storify stories that Maritime Noon listeners and regular PlayGroundology readers can explore. Just click through on the bolded titles below or the accompanying photos and you’ll be whisked away to curated content that includes journalism, videos, blogposts and more.

One resource that I would like to single out that may be of interest to listeners is No Fear – Growing Up in a Risk Averse Society (free download) written by British play advocate Tim Gill and published by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

And now, on with the storify content.
