My name is Nicola and I am the Founder & Program Director of goodworm. Through a variety of ways, I help connect people to plants and pollinators. I am a social worker turned social entrepreneur. I design and deliver Environmental + Nature Education programs.


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 certification in the following:

     Horticulture as Therapy

     Pollinator Stewardship 

     Nat Geo's Classroom Climate Change

     Eco-anxiety into Eco-action (Earth Rangers)

     Learning from the Land (Reconciliation Ed)

I am also a Bee Ambassador with the organization: Bee Ambassadors Canada and 

Butterfly Ranger with the David Suzuki Foundation's Butterfly Ranger Project

I have lived and gardened in plant hardiness zones 2B, 3B, 4B, and 9B.


'Two-eyed seeing' and experiential learning are core aspects of my pedagogy.


Let's connect! Let's grow!
