Caro & Co is the brainchild of writer and author, Caro Webster. Following on from the success of her book (Small Fry Outdoors-inspiration for being outside with kids) she realised that people were hungrier than ever for information and tips on how to keep kids connected to the wonder of nature and outdoors. A dedicated free-play advocate, Caro & Co is a also a place people come to for tips and insights on how to encourage children to find wonder in the ordinary, or everyday. You’ll find posts on engaging kids with art and craft ideas using found objects, cooking, food sources and sustainability, gardening, animals and encouraging independent discovery and fostering resilience and responsible risk-taking.
Humorous and engaging in tone, Caro & Co has a loyal band of subscribers. An earnest foodie, you’ll find lots of easy and beautiful recipes too. A champion of fostering imagination, pop over to the ‘imagination’ page if your child is eager to discover more about the world of magical creatures.
Give Caro a pen, garden, time to cook, her kids, politics and she’s at her happiest. With a home in Sydney and a sprawling farm on the southern tablelands, she knows she and her family are incredibly lucky. The farm in particular provides her with much inspiration. Caro contributes regularly to Australian Country Style magazine, contributes sporadically to others and is currently working on a second book about a girl who loves dirt. She’s also close to admitting her addiction to social media and can be found on twitter, facebook, instagram and pinterest.
Former international TV Reporter and now working mum of two young girls, Suzannah Cowley is the newest member of the Caro & Co team. She is also very keen to share her passion for connecting kids with the outdoors. “Until I had kids I never knew the importance of being outdoors for more than just recreation. The time I spend with my kids in the bush, beach, mountains or simply in the back garden has truly enriched our lives. I want to teach my kids that spending time in nature has the ability to build emotional, spiritual and physical health. Suz will contribute web video stories and interviews, bringing to life the outdoors through the eyes of a child.
