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.
