Walk the Land has been absolutely incredible for our family.
Samantha has built a wonderful relationship with my daughter and it’s so special to be able to watch their bond grow as Sam is so gentle and caring towards the children.
My daughter has a love for the craft activities that are set up for her on arrival, the creek swims, the bush walks and messy mud play!
She also comes home regularly to sing new songs to me that she has learnt on the day, which is so lovely to hear.
We look forward to many more adventures with Samantha at Walk the Land and we feel very blessed to be part of the adventure.
Both my children love it. They ask to go and hate to leave. It’s the first group social experience that fills my daughters cup rather than creates anxiety. We chose to bring our children to Walk The Land for more experiences in nature and connection. And it has been more than we hoped for.”
My daughter and I are both so happy with Samantha and the beautiful land that Walk the Land is held on. My little one loves and trusts Sam. She happily joins in the morning craft activity as soon as she arrives, and is cheerful and vibrant when I pick her up at the end of her day.
It’s so precious to be able to walk away knowing she will be cared for as well as guided in nature play and creative activities.
So so grateful for what this year of Walk The Land has given to my child. Such rich, connective experiences with nature and with beautiful little people and you Samantha Thank you so much for all you give and all you do Sam. My child will miss you all, as will we!
We have loved being a part of Walk The Land this year. It has truly been a highlight in our daughter’s week to take part in this beautiful small group environment, where Samantha nurtures and holds space for the children to explore, play and develop their social skills in a truly magical bush setting.
It has also been more than just an activity for our child. It has been a wonderful experience to be part of this community, participating in working bees and group gatherings, building friendships with the other families and getting to witness the evolution and unfolding of this project during its first year.

So much gratitude for Samantha and Walk The Land.
My son has a safe and expansive place to explore and learn with other kids.
Under Samantha’s calm guidance, he is free to be himself.
Samantha's gentle manner makes for a very calm environment. She allows the children to lead the playtime, whether it be dancing, exploring the garden, drawing, or making felt toys. Our family are ever so grateful that Samantha could care for our most precious people with love and kindness. We trust her with their lives. She always encourages them to be independent whilst honing their safety skills.
Samantha is kindhearted and gentle with the children. In a short time she created a strong bond with both my children. She always does activities and experiments involving the wonder of nature. She keeps us informed with visual diaries of what happens each day with the kids. We were ever so grateful because the kids don't tell you the details so I would have missed a lot without this personal touch. Samantha has a love of singing and a beautiful voice that the boys loved to sing along with; learning songs they share with me later. I feel so grateful to have Samantha in our lives guiding my children with a respect for the spiritual nature of all living things.
