My name is Nicola Gunter and I am the Founder & Program Director of goodworm.
Through a variety of ways, I help connect people to plants + pollinators. I am a social worker turned social entrepreneur and Environmental + Nature Educator.
I have over 15 years experience working with children/youth in a variety of roles such as mental health therapist and community coordinator. I have post-bachelor's degree training/education in the following:
Horticulture as Therapy
Organic Master Gardener
Nat Geo Climate Change for the Classroom
Earth Rangers Eco-anxiety into Eco-action
Raven Trust's Home on Native Land
As well, I have lived and gardened in plant hardiness zones 2B, 3B, 4B, and 9B.
Two-eyed seeing, hands-on learning, and scaffolding are core aspects of my pedagogy.
Let's connect! Let's grow!
