Kris Antonius has a crew of four budding naturalists – ages 6, 9, 12, and 16 – three of whom she spends her days with, focused on simple living, learning, making, and eating. A former educator, and huge fan of child-led learning, Kris learns alongside her children about nature, hand-crafting, homesteading, and growing, cooking and eating good food. You can follow her homeschooling and urban-homesteading adventures at www.tinypeasant.com.
Maria Epp – Mom to two eager girls (6 and 4) who love playing outdoors. Educating from home, we are continually inspired by the natural world around us as our teacher. Trips to wild parks, natural learning centres and along the river are highlights for us. Foraging and cooking with wild edibles has become a new hobby as well as creating an adventure play space in our back yard. We incorporate art and cooking into our learning as we get to know the plants and animals in a more in-depth way.
