Hi Catarina!

My name is Janice and I am the Coordinator for Family Nature Clubs here with C&NN. I just wanted to say welcome to the group! It's very exciting to have a member from Portugal I must say! Do you have a family nature club there too? I see that you are also active in the Natural Teachers Network. That's great. I hope you feel free and welcome to start discussions here in the Natural Families Network, ask questions, and/or add to existing discussions. =)

All the best,

Janice Swaisgood
