I was lucky enough to grow up in a small town with easy access to woods, lakes, and other wild areas. I spent hours outside exploring, getting dirty, looking for bugs and fairies, and playing make-believe. Outside anything seemed possible! When I became a parent, I couldn't wait to pass on this love of the outdoors and sense of wonder to my child. And now, through Tinkergarten, I couldn't be more excited to help bring it to other families in the Durham area as well.
