We live locally in Raynes Park but spent our childhoods in carefree outdoor environments and wanted the same for our kids. It was the sort of time when you could leave the house after breakfast and not return until it was nearly dark, and only then because you were hungry!
We met in the Kalahari desert in Botswana whilst living under canvas and managing a safari lodge and are now parents ourselves. We love our life in London but were saddened by the lack of opportunities for young kids to be outdoors playing freely and exploring in the fresh air. So we decided to do something about it and in 2015 we launched our first forest nursery in Wimbledon!
We want to give all children in London the opportunity for a direct and regular avenue to nature and the joy of unrestrained childhood. We are passionate about healthy development, respect for all, safety, good nutritious food and the delights of the natural world.
