Thomas and his helpers built three distinctive and unique outdoor learning environments for the students and staff of Celebrate the Children, located in Denville, N.J.
The first phase of the project included building benches made out of tree stumps with wood bench tops. The next phase of the project included building foldable and movable benches, which allows the students to learn in different locations and different arrangements. The final phase of the project included building a cedar teepee, used as a cool-down zone for the students.
