Welcome

Mossy Green Kids introduce's children to the natural world. 

As a therapeutic approach to increasing wellbeing and confidence, my work is underpinned by the Forest School ethos of learning: 

 

HORTICULTURAL THERAPY: I encourage awareness and nurture growing skills through plants, trees and green space.

NATURE CONNECTIONS: I work as a nature guide through all seasons, encouraging natural curiosity, knowledge, individual interests and wild learning.

LIFE SKILLS: Wider learning includes facing fears, understanding cycles of life, death and renewal, Developing a greater confidence and involvement within the natural world,

EARTH KEEPING: I work with settings to re-wild outdoor places, private gardens, school grounds and community spaces. 

PLANTSWOMAN: Hands on propagation growing wild native species including wild flowers and native saplings.
