    (Encore) Kristina Garner of Blossom and Root

    Special Note: We had a family emergency this weekend and the monday episode was delayed. We will be back to it on Thursday. We are sorry for the delay.


    Today on the show we interviewed Kristina Garner, creator of the fantastic secular curriculum Blossom & Root. We discussed what drove her to develop this curriculum, why nature based learning is so critical, and how we should approach using the resources she provides. She also has lots of great advice for new homeschooling families as they embark on this rewarding journey.

New homeschooler

I’ve just begun venturing into homeschooling with my almost 4 year old and this podcast has been so amazing. Just a wealth of information for everything I have questions about. I love all the curriculum reviews and the stories from experienced homeschoolers. I feel like I’ve finally found a community to relate to living somewhere that not many people are homeschoolers near me. Thank you for the entertaining and informative podcast keep up the amazing work !!

Really Helpful Podcast

I’m a newbie homeschooler and I really love the teamwork demonstrated in this podcast. I also love all of the honest reviews. The Christmas list episode was wonderful!

WildWoodsMama ,

The BEST most informative homeschool podcast!

Matt & Ariel are not only hilarious, relatable, & easy to listen to but they are also so helpful & go above and beyond to make sure their listeners can learn with them & from them & their journey. I found this podcast a few months ago & have quickly made my way through many of the episodes- I listen any chance I get! I have also watched their YouTube videos - if you haven’t yet- check them out! Seriously, so helpful! They have saved me so much time and energy from choosing curriculum to planning our around the world study- I would have been lost & exhausted without this podcast. Thank you both so much for all that you do! The links in the show notes are amazing each and every time & make it so easy to listen and enjoy and then go back and print things off, buy new games, make Amazon lists, ect.
