Welcome.

Mossy Green Kids was created to introduce children to the natural world. 

Mossy Green Kids is a therapeutic approach to building wellbeing and confidence. This is underpinned by the Forest School ethos of learning.  

 

HORTICULTURAL THERAPY: I encourage each child, as they discover and develop their own unique nature connections. Through plant identification, growing and harvesting foods, understanding flowers and fauna in many forms they begin to understand they are part of the web of life.

NATURE CONNECTIONS: Working as a guide through all seasons, I encourage each child to follow their natural curiosity, building on knowledge, interests and wild learning. Wider learning includes facing fears, learning life lessons and developing a greater sense of their place within the natural world,

EARTH KEEPER: Rewilding outdoor places, private gardens, school grounds and community spaces to preserve and create natural habitats and wildlife friendly green spaces.

PLANTSWOMAN: Propagation and Rewilding, growing wild native species including wild flowers and native saplings.
