Forest Schooled is my blog and business which aims to support ongoing, reflective practice for educators just starting out, and those who are more experienced, in nature-rooted education approaches. I use the word “nature-rooted” to reflect the diversity of ways we learn and connect with the natural world (like Forest School, Nature-based education, Land-based learning, and more).
I live in Canada now but am from the US and spent many years in the UK. I created this group as a way to stay connected to all those I’ve met along the way, and to meet others who’d like to join this growing community too.
This is a space for an international network of educators, teachers, as well as parents and caregivers to learn and reflect more deeply about the work we do - which is what I mean when I use the term “Forest Schooled”!
When building a fire the components may be different sizes, yet they are all just as important as each other. So ALL membership levels receive access to this community space.
"Birch bark" is free. The paid options will help support Forest Schooled's scholarship fund because I believe everyone deserves access to learning. If you're in a position to give more please consider the "Firewood" and "Sparks" options (and take note of the gifts you'll receive from me in return 😊🌿)
All 3 plans give you the chance to try everything out for free. Those who continue on with the paid plans will receive their gifts.
This community is for active engagement and discussion in a safe and supportive environment. It takes all of us to ensure this is possible! Before joining, check in and make sure the following apply to you:
