Mell has worked with all ages and abilities, facilitating with the ethos of Forest School and the theories of Earth Education, Nature Connection and Environmental Education. After many years of environmental campaigning, Mell started to work within this field believing that if people felt re-connected to the natural world, they would more readily take an active role in fostering the sustainability of the planet. In 2014, she was shortlisted for the Learning Outside the Classrooms national award for ‘Most inspiring Educator’. Mell was a co-creator/director of a small school, ‘Wild Meadows’, for home educated children. Together the parents and children built a straw bale building as a classroom, then developed the space and facilitated activities for families to learn together in a nature-based, child-led and child-centred way.
