Growing up in a rural area I spent a ton of time outdoors, walking in the woods, gardening and playing with friends on a local farm. As a mom I want to provide that same opportunity for my son! The Tolland area has so much to offer in the way of parks and conservation areas. Our family enjoys exploring a new trail almost every weekend, year round! I am so excited to bring Tinkergarten to Tolland County and I can´t wait to meet you and your children! See you outside!
