COME PLAY WITH US
FREE TO JUST BE
Our mission is to inspire children and families to spend more time in nature - to slow down, have fun, get dirty, learn practical skills and sometimes simply be free to just be.
Nature is our teacher. Its rhythms inspire our curriculum. We use play, mindfulness and storytelling to nurture a deeper connection with Mother Earth, with our community and with ourselves.
Hi, I’m Lidia, founder of Big Scrub Nature Play and author of Growing with Nature. I am a forest school mentor, play worker and mother of 2 wildlings.
I started Big Scrub in 2019 with the vision of bringing more nature into the lives of children and families - in Australia and all around the world.
I am deeply passionate about learning through play, herbal medicine and restorative storytelling.
