Gina Dive – Facilitator

Level 3 Forest School, Higher Level Teaching Assistant and BA (hons) Textile Art.

I have always sought wellbeing and acceptance in nature, spending hours as a child, usually alone, wandering and exploring the fields and hedgerows around the farm I grew up on. Long Roman roads, chalk pits and ancient spineys full of animal bones and brambles with only the sound of skylarks for company. Magic.

Coming from an Arts background and working with children in schools and nurseries, whilst starting my own family, led me naturally back to a life immersed in nature. Discovering Forest School has changed my life forever and over the last decade has led to a much deeper connection and understanding of life and the importance of community.

I love to re-discover and introduce the natural world alongside children and adults and I am filled with new wonder every single day. I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to support others in this way and to help change their lives for the better too. And, I know my journey isn’t over, in fact, it is just beginning…💚
