About

Naturelovers facilitates learning by connecting children to nature.

I combine my extensive horticultural, linguistic and teaching experience, to pass on my skills and passion for gardening, love of nature, learning from different cultures, and sustainability.

I offer a broad range of services including:

  • Gardening design and workshops (schools, private gardens, community)
  • Educational incursions/excursions for nature-based inquiry learning
  • Teacher PD traininghow to use the outdoors as a classroom
  • Children’s nature parties

I work in metropolitan Melbourne, and help individuals, families, communities, schools and organisations reconnect with nature to promote wellbeing, sustainability, connection to community and reconciliation with indigenous cultures, primarily the Kulin Nation of Melbourne.

Thank you Pascale Miller for your expert support in making our garden safe for our pets! Above and beyond! Seriously. (Zohar Badesheh, April 2017)

Many cats, dogs and other pets visit vets showing signs of difficulty breathing, vomiting, depression, lethargy, or other symptoms of poison from their environment. Many are due to exposure to toxic plants in and around the home, sometimes building up over years, and often the first thing a vet asks is do you have toxic plants in your garden?

Naturelovers can advise you on which plants are safe or unsafe in your garden by correctly identifying each plant. We can suggest alternatives to those which are found toxic, to ensure both your family and your pets can enjoy your garden with peace of mind.

Pet safe garden advice

“I couldn’t believe how quickly and excitedly my eternally introverted 3.5 yr old daughter came out of her shell to explore the little world Pascale so passionately, patiently and respectfully invited her into. It was as if a secret doorway had been opened and Ava just couldn’t wait to walk through it and into this magical world of nature and discovery. From the moment Pas started talking to her and introducing her to jumping rocks, feather fairies, flower crowns and different shells, I and everything else was utterly invisible. She was the most excited and engaged I had ever seen her in any activity and with any person. Thank you Pascale for the time you spent exploring with Ava and teaching her so much that she still talks about every day since. She can’t wait to learn and play with you again soon!” Malki Rose (6th December 2016)
