Emlen School

LandHealth Institute
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

LandHealth Institute designed and coordinated the installation of a natural playscape and outdoor classroom area in Emlen’s schoolyard – once a shadeless expanse of asphalt. This new amenity acts as an outdoor classroom as well as a creative playscape. This project showcases what can be accomplished with a budget of $5,000 and a dedicated team of volunteers.  More about this project >
