What we do

Through our nature clubs workshops and family camps, we provide opportunities for people to connect with each other, the natural world and a like-minded community. Children are nurtured to develop their enquiring minds and deepen their wonder and respect for the natural world.

On our days at Currawong Kids we are immersed in nature. The environment is created not only by the wildness of Darebin parklands, but my Mel who has in a short time created a tribe where everyone is valued and heard. The program is child led, where the curiosities of the moment are explored in partnership by all.
Mel’s enthusiasm is contagious – my children adore her and we look forward to exploring and learning more with her.Kim, parent

Mel brings a joyful and deep authenticity to this work and her playful nature and ability to relate to adults and children alike gives her a great start. We are very much looking forward to seeing her work grow and spread. –Caj, parent

I was looking for a way for my family and I to have some time to connect to nature and to learn some bush skills. Mel was able to facilitate this in a way that allowed every member of the family to be able to get something out of her nature connection camp. She was very good at gauging were my children were at and whether they were able to cope with certain activities. This made it very easy as a parent.Katherine, family camp participant
