Have you been wanting to do more nature play at home and just don’t know where to start? What if your child’s nature play space could support their healthy brain development and balanced bodies? What if it celebrated their individuality, independence, and spirit?
It’s easier than you think, and I’m here to help.
My unique workshop series and online courses give you the resources, tools, and guidance so you can easily create a nature play space at home that is perfectly suited to your child.
Children’s play and learning is rooted entirely in their sensory experiences…in their language of the senses.
The language of the senses is one all children understand. It’s primal. It’s truth. It’s real experience. It’s the language they use to communicate with their environment, with nature, so they may better understand the world around them and their place within it. It’s also the way nature communicates with them.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a sensory garden, a nature play area, at home - big or small - that engages your child’s seven senses (yes, seven!), sparks their imagination and curiosity, inspires learning, connects them deeply with nature, and celebrates their individuality?
My workshops offer you the guidance and the tools needed to create a space that you and your family can enjoy. I also offer one on one tailored sessions. Sign up today. Let's get started creating together.

“Jena’s innovation and creativity were priceless in our school’s learning landscape project. One of our third graders, who finds it challenging to learn indoors, absolutely thrives in the garden!”
Meg | Mom of Three & Green Schoolyard Advocate
"As an occupational therapist and researcher studying inclusion for children with sensory differences, I find Jena’s work to be refreshing and inspiring. She truly understands what sensory needs are and the therapeutic value in supporting them through landscape design. Not only is her work whimsical and inviting, it can be life-changing for children who finally get the chance to play in environments that were tailor made with them in mind."
