Grubby Greetings from New Zealand


I’m a teacher, Mumma and kids gardening/nature club enthusiast!  I live in Northland, New Zealand, with my amazing hubby, little Mr 3 year old and our 4 month old twins.

I enjoyed teaching full time for 10 years (mostly years 2-4) and loved setting up and organising our schools lunchtime garden club – The Green Grubs!  The realisation that this club was meeting some need and providing new experiences for the children that they all loved was quite powerful.  All children can experience success in the garden or nature, and all curriculum areas can be linked to their experiences.  Being outside and sinking grubby hands into fresh soil has a calming and grounding effect for all children and provides so many rich and engaging learning experiences.
Up until the arrival of my twin babes I was teaching part time/relieving, which allowed me the time to indulge my passion and enthusiasm for all things green, grubby and Kiwi!  This includes creating specialised resources to support nature based education.

I pride myself on creating practical and creative resources that get children involved in the wonder that is our natural world.  More recently, I've also enjoyed creating Kiwi based resources (Waitangi day, Anzac day, Matariki etc.) that are fun, user friendly and created with Primary aged children (and their teachers!) in mind.

Thanks so much for popping by ~ have a good rummage around and download some freebies!

Grubbily yours,


Fresh air, bare feet + grubby hands = active learning!
