In this podcast episode, I’m chatting with Ginny Yurich, the creator of the 1000 Hours outside movement. Ginny offers hands-on, practical ways to get your children off of electronics and out in nature while also inspiring you to do the same.
She encourages us that our kids can do less of those “enriching activities,” that sometimes cost a fortune, and yet gain so much more… all from more time in nature.
