Guest Details

Nicolette Sowder is the creator of Wilder Child and Wildschooling. Nicolettés passion and heart’s mission is to help families step back into the circle of wild things and bond with Mother Nature. She believes that when we are rooted in that relationship and ancient connection, we heal, we flow, we fly.

In 2013, Nicolette, her husband and one-year-old daughter (The Wild Child) took a first step in realizing their dreams and moved to North West Michigan to start Honeybird Farm, a 60 acre farm based on regenerative agriculture principals.

They had no conscious idea of how much living that close to nature would transform them. Nicolette originally started Wilder Child to help record and lend words to the deep, familial bonds they were forging with the Wild that surrounded them.

But it was her community, their stories, voices and support that encouraged her to share more and begin serving as a nature-connection guide and conduit for families who wanted to walk side by side barefoot down the dirt-lined path. What is now a passionate, mud-loving, free community spanning the globe.
