About Tinkergarten

Tinkergarten provides high-quality early childhood learning in the healthiest classroom of all—the outdoors. Families connect with trained leaders in their local community for play-based kids classes that help develop core life skills, all while having fun!

Playing in the beautiful parks around Gainesville has become one of my favorite things to do! So it has seemed only natural to join the Tinkergarten team and foster a love in children for being outside. With a background in horticulture and horticultural therapy, I have a deep desire to be outside and wonder at the natural world. I feel that kids are the most enthusiastic at marveling at nature and am looking forward to playing alongside them during classes!
