NATURE WORKSHOPS IN SCHOOLS
If you are interested in Gini coming to teach the children at your local school then please get in touch.
Subjects are topical and linked with the seasons - for example, during the summer term we cover birds and their nests, making a drink from flowers, grasses, compost and insects.
I am a Montessori trained teacher, with a degree in Environmental Conservation, and have spent many years running nursery schools, including one here in the village and working with young children.
I have run gardening workshops at many schools in Hertfordshire and run after school garden clubs with inner city children. I currently run nature workshops in nursery schools and am very keen to encourage children to get outdoors, get muddy, grow food and learn about nature and farming.
"Joseph has loved attending your class, he is so excited every Tuesday morning to go to school as he knows you will be there, he told me you are his favourite teacher. Every week when I pick Joseph up he is so excited to show me what he has made in your nature class. Meeting the baby chicks was definitely his favourite day. Joseph had told me you talked about birds, frogs, caterpillars and have been watching them transform each week. Thank you for all your help"
"When Oliver was at your nature class he loved the nature workshops and still remembers them now (he's 8!)" and "Oliver is still hugely in to nature, he loves finding out what birds are when he sees them, he also enjoys planting and growing and looking at insects in the garden"
"Flynn has loved them, and comes home with the things he has made showing them off with pride" and "he has been pointing out nests in particular, and has been spotting and naming different birds everywhere and he loves being hands on with nature, and has been digging in the garden more than ever, finding bugs, investigating smells, and so on."
