Event description

“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.” – David Sobel

Wild Daisy Nature Playgroup is a relaxed playgroup, facilitated by Dee Jones in an urban bush environment. It aims to connect families, community and nature.

Children and their families are invited to slow down, take notice and jump in as they engage with curiosity in the wonders of the natural world. They will create nature art, plant seeds, make bush cubbies, climb trees, jump in muddy puddles, discover local plants and minibeasts and do lots of nature exploration! Each week’s offering includes a balance of stories, song, sensory activities and unstructured play.

Held outside in (almost) any weather, this weekly gathering is an adventure through the Kulin seasons. Participants will feel enriched, empowered with confidence and full of gratitude for the land and community.

Dee Jones finds inspiration in nature. It was this love of nature that lead her to combine her environmental education, facilitation skills and her arts practice to share this passion and connection with others - particularly children and families as a Nature Playgroup Facilitator. Inspired by Joanna Macy's The Work that Reconnects and local nature practitioner, Claire Dunn, Dee sees this role as a means to connect local communities more deeply with their local environment leading to motivation to protect it. Dee has a strong affinity to Edgar’s creek in Narrm (Melbourne) on Wurundjeri Country and is also particularly interested in finding ways to honour and acknowledge the Wurundjeri people's long-standing connection and care for this country. Dee provides a warm and inclusive space to build a heart connection to nature and community through play, experiential learning and exploration. She believes empowering children in the formative years is instrumental in creating a sustainable future and wellbeing for all.
