OUR HISTORY

BÚHO DE BARRO was born as a family project. We have always visualized our future knowing that we should live in contact with nature. When our children Zoé and Hugo were born, that instinct became stronger and, of course, our priorities changed. We realized how important and essential it is for us and our children to live everyday life in regular contact with natural environments.

In the United Kingdom, Natalia begins training to become certified as a Level 3 Forest School Leader through Forest Schools Education Ltd., finishing her certification in Cusco in 2020.

The Green Education Movement in Spain, l'École de la Nature in France, the Forest School in the United Kingdom and the Forest Kindergarten in Denmark are just some examples of this methodology and philosophy that is growing in the world. For this reason, we decided to found BÚHO DE BARRO, an Association that develops and implements educational programs in direct contact with nature in Peru. .
