Hi! I am an artist, avid gardener, nature lover and Horticultural Therapist (www.yournewnature.com) I was a girl scout leader for many years and enjoy helping children explore the natural world! Learning should be engaging...and fun! Painting with flowers, collecting leaves and seeds, chasing the wind, looking at rocks, and playing as a group...allows for sensory awareness, social interaction and physical activity through Mindful listening, Mindful seeing, Mindful thinking. I lead to inspire children's natural curiosity and to help build self awareness and confidence. Being outside in nature can be one of the best "classrooms", it can be anything from a science lab to an art studio. Let's fill our children with joy... as they run to catch the wind, make stone "soup" or dance with the falling leaves!
