This has been something I've often dreamed of, as well.

Our new house will be on 5 acres, with a share of a 10-acre pond, marshy area, and woods. I will definately be incorporating that into my program. The tough part is, if you're rural, you're rural. So, it means parents have further to drive and thus it's tougher to attract families. If you're in town, there is no "forest", so it's tricky to have a good forest school.

I suppose someone in town could offer transportation, but that add further complications.

I also get mostly infants and toddlers (the 2's and up go to the centers...in town), and taking 5 kiddos, 2 of whom can't walk, into the woods is another challenge. They really don't make good all-terrain strollers, do they?
