“Wow, I just finished a KaBoom! playground at my school and come home to browse the internet to find this. I can personally attest to how well organized they are in that we were able to put together not only a playground but a community garden and an outdoor classroom all within 6 hours with the help of about 200 volunteers. I was amazed how smoothly everything went, with only a few hiccups (missing components/tools).
2 months of planning went into it with KaBoom! holding the PTO's hand, through weekly conference calls, as the PTO organized just about everything. As exhausted as I am right now, I know that this will make a meaningful difference in my students lives. I already have plans to utilize the outdoor classroom, and my class has already started a nature trail behind our school to tie into the project all at the eye numbing cost of nothing since we were able to use the tools from the KaBoom! project (no more will we have our inner city kids not able to tell us where plants come from or unable to visit natural spaces). Thanks again to the KaBoom! team for all that you've done for us!”
