Show Notes

Joining me is Sal Preston, a pioneer who set up Monmouthshire's first outdoor nursery in 2019. The thing that I find about people who set up projects like this on their own, is the sheer amount of determination and passion it takes. It may have been a tough first year, but there is also so much potential growth to come in today's new outdoor-focused world! I want to find out how today's guest went from teaching in mainstream primary schools to operating her own outdoor nursery.
