About Us

 
 Jen Higgins-Stowell

Director

Radical Childhood Farm & Wilderness Camp

 

    I am a Vermont certified K-6 teacher with experience in a variety of settings.  In my classroom, I worked to provide unique opportunities for students to grow and learn.  Now I’m a mom raising and homeschooling my own children, and there is no better setting than the outdoors for children to learn!

    I believe that we as humans are intrinsically linked to nature.  Children are especially attuned to the magic that happens when we interact with the natural world.  Therefore, connecting children to nature and to the plants and animals that nourish them, creates an intimacy that is both exciting and familiar at the same time.  I love working with children because I am continually awed by the wonder of a child.
