My Nature Nook
My name is Leila. I am a full-time mum to two little explorers, poet, artist, doctor and herbalist. I also love nature – as you can see! I design and create all My Nature Nook resources, including the website, courses, books and activities. But, as any mother will know, it can be difficult juggling life around young children, so everything you see here is created in snatches in the rare moments my young explorers are sleeping.
The purpose of My Nature Nook, is to help get you back to nature by providing beautiful, enjoyable, useful resources to help re-connect you and your family to nature. Our aim is to grow your nature knowledge and build your nature walk confidence.
I hope you enjoy our Nature Nook x
