    When picking up his daughter from summer camp one day this past summer, Fraser Woods Montessori School parent Ryan Knaggs had an idea.

    There was a circle of stumps, up a small but slightly steep trail and beneath trees on the school’s property, and the students were using the stumps as chairs while listening to school teacher and summer camp instructor Christine Mitchell.

    It occurred to Mr Knaggs that with a little “natural work” the space could be transformed.
