I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia where we were always told to go outside and play, only to return home when it was dark. I have many wonderful memories of hours of outdoor play and exploration and am passionate about instilling a sense independence, confidence in nature and love of exploring with my own three children and others in our community. Tinkergarten combines my love for teaching with my passion for the outdoors in the most exciting ways!
