In 2014 three girls had a dream to open an outdoor learning, eco nursery, this led to the creation of Muddy Boots Nursery School in Dorset. Over the years of running the nursery and learning more and more about the benefits of being outside the girls wanted to create a product that not only further embedded children's roots to nature but one that also reconnected adults to nature, this led to Wildflower being created in 2020.
It is believed now that we only spend between 1-5% of our time outside! There are so many benefits too are physical and mental health from just spending time outdoors. We want Wildflower to make it fun and easy for parents to spend time outside reaping the many benefits.
