WHY?

The recent years have shown us the extent of our disconnect with natural environments around us. Our physical, mental and spiritual health got affected and we found ourselves trying to cure symptoms instead of tackling the root causes. One of the big problems we are facing today is what is called Nature Deficiency Disorder,  which describes the human costs of alienation from nature.

WHAT? 

School of Nature helps you and your children reconnect gently with the natural environments around you. To do that, we offer a wide range of nature-centric activities that are fun, useful, and age-relevant.

The curriculum is 40 weeks /160 hours of interactive workshops. Four hours Once a Week or 2 hours twice a week starting October 1st, 2022.

1.    Purposeful Life
2.    My Environemnt
