Naturelovers facilitates learning by connecting children to nature and the outdoors. We offer the following services:
– Garden consultation & design
Naturelovers specialises in custom gardens for all purposes including kitchen gardens, sensory gardens (also for special needs), indigenous landscapes and wildlife attracting habitats.
We offer garden consultations to individuals, families, schools and kindergartens, and community organisations.
An initial 60 minute consultation is $100 meeting face-to-face at your site and is suited to those who would like a DIY garden but need advice. This includes:
- Site analysis
- Liaison with client, listening to your needs, likes and dislikes
- Horticultural advice, recommended materials, plant selection and requirements
- After the consultation we send you a planting list with recommendations on planting and after care
For a garden design we offer a 90minute initial consultation at $250, which covers all the above, but also includes a concept plan design of the garden based on our initial consultation.
For additional charges ($55/hr) we can also help with the soft landscape installation (planting, composting and mulching), or plant selection and placement. We can also quote costings of plants, materials and labour if you would like us to help with the installation.
– Teacher PD training
Let Naturelovers come and inspire your teachers to use available garden or outdoor areas for engaging student learning and inquiry. Suits general studies or specialist teachers, PYP schools and kitchen garden facilitators.
– Facilitation of educational incursions/excursions
Naturelovers visits Schools, Kindergartens, Playgroups and Childcare Centres with various engaging programs designed to teach children about gardening, mindfulness, natural sciences, sustainability and wildlife conservation through exploration, nature-based play and craft activities. Naturelovers also facilitates class excursions to local parks and reserves to better connect children to their own natural environment. We explore local biodiversity and the ways in which children can better connect with and contribute to these special places.
