About Us

We are passionate about inspiring and empowering kids to love and care for nature from an early age.

Through stronger connections to the earth, they will develop a deeper understanding of reciprocal relationships within the natural world and it nurtures their hearts, minds and hands as our future environmental stewards.

Marianne Aral

Marianne was born into a family that spent every weekend either bush-walking or going to the beach.

She graduated as a graphic designer and worked in various studios in the Netherlands, Turkey and Australia over the years. She is currently freelancing and enjoying the variety of work this presents.

Marianne has always been an advocate for improvement in the way we educate our children and was more than happy to work on the positive connection with nature that both Tania and Jennie promote. 

We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise the deep knowledge, connection and caring relationship they have to the land and waters on which we play, learn and explore. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
