New Playground for Acaciawood!!

Our long overdue playground has now been built at Acaciawood. Last weekend saw a flurry of activity by the friends and parents of Acaciawood as we all came together to build a new playground. A big thanks again to all involved.

 In the spirit of what I think the internet was truely designed for, (the free exchange of ideas and knowledge), I have posted below, the design drawings for what we have built. If you would like to see a very cool time lapse photo record of the construction process, follow the link below to visit the Acaciawood Waldorf Facebook page... Enjoy!!!!!
