Alix Wilson - Aftercare
As a child I was blessed with a mother who taught me to notice and celebrate the little things happening in nature around us all the time. I was also fortunate to live in many places across Canada, always in spots with lots of big, wild spaces to spend hours exploring. This foundation of playing/learning close to nature is the root of my passion for learning outdoors. After 5 years of running a nature based preschool program out of my home (Room to Grow), I am currently working in my third year as an educator at Hand-In-Hand Early Years Nature Education Program in Cumberland. My husband and I have been raising two boys, (now 13 and 10 years old), in the Comox Valley for 9 years, and share our home with 2 dogs and a dozen chickens.
