The Homestead is Doing Incredible Work

Joining me are Rachel and Kim from The Homestead Nursery, a reggio inspired, outdoor loving setting in beautiful Wales. Theirs is an inspirational journey! From buying an established nursery to turning it into something incredibly special. These women hold research-informed practice dear to the hearts.
