What is My Muddy Boots?
My Muddy Boots is an environmental education business in Leicestershire that aims to facilitate and deepen connections to nature, to creativity and to other people.
My Muddy Boots has grown organically since the smallest beginnings in 2010, shaped by the ethics and principles of Permaculture. Earth care, people care and fair shares are at the heart of all we stand for.
We run a forest pre-school, allotment playgroup, earth arts group, family forest adventure days and women’s groups, all based outdoors and inspired by Mother Nature.
My Muddy Boots is wild about the outdoors! We create outdoor experiences for all ages that explores the natural environment, encourages creative play and teach in a really hands on way about the wonders of nature.
My Muddy Boots is based in South Leicestershire and run by Forest school leader, creative practitioner, gardener, permaculture designer, mother of three wild kids and all round nature-addict Emily Crofton.
Emily adores being outside in all weathers (even the rain) exploring the wonders of nature and she want YOU to join her! Emily believes that everyone need to spend as much time as possible being free and creative in the outdoors. Our lives are increasingly spend indoors looking at screens and we miss out on so much adventure and excitement that is happening outside our front door!
“We love My Muddy Boots, it’s educational, inspirational and gives you the opportunity to chill and play in the outdoors. Everyone in the group is ace and Emily is really good, always gets the children engaged in the activities. Can’t wait for the next one to start! ”My Muddy Boots participant
So much can be gained by learning about the changing seasons, the wildlife in your garden, the bugs that live in your local park and how your food grows. Get your hands in the dirt, feel the breeze in your hair, experience the feeling of rain on your skin and breathe in the wonderful wild world.
The natural world is facing an unsure future. Climate change, pollution and increasing global populations are putting great pressures onto the Earth. It is easy to feel over-whelmed and helpless in the light of these huge challenges.
But there is one vitally important thing that YOU can do to help protect our beautiful planet. You can encourage a love of nature in your children.
By providing them with inspiring opportunities to play and learn outdoors, they will develop a deep understanding and love for nature. And what we love as children, we will strive to protect as adults.
Join us at Muddy Boots in creating the next generation of environmental activists, botanists, artists, gardeners, farmers and nature lovers.
