Hi I’m Victoria

My garden story started when I was a parent at my child’s elementary school spearheading the transformation of an old desolate courtyard into a children’s Garden & Outdoor Classroom. This process changed my entire philosophy of education and triggered my research into The Four Types of Gardens, the Five Phases of Teaching Outdoors and the benefits of teaching outdoors on child development.

I now inspire teachers and parents to create outdoor classrooms and backyard learning gardens. At Outdoor Classrooms, my mission is to create a community of like-minded educators from all over the world that eagerly support, playfully learn, willingly collaborate while on the journey to reconnect children with nature. .
