Hi, thanks for stopping by. I am a Homeschool mom of 5 as well as Girl scout leader, a Boy scout leader, and former leader of a Kids for Peace Chapter. I have been teaching nature studies since my oldest (now 17) was 2 and was completely enamored by the natural world around him. I have a background in Anthropology and have taught nature studies to my own children and to other homeschoolers in our area for 15 years. We are blessed to live just outside the city on 15 acres of land with woods, a field, and pond. We run an organic farm currently raising hogs and chickens. I am a firm believer in the power of nature play. Helping kids and parents use their imaginations during outside play in this very digital age of “click it and make it happen” is my passion. Come join me outside so we grow, play and get messy in the fresh air together.
