Lizzie Garrard DiQuattro

Director of Bloom. My husband, Ben, and I grew up in the Columbus area and moved back in 2019 when we were about to become new parents. We have two children, a dog (Pebbles) and 21 nieces and nephews! I was inspired to create Bloom when I looked around for forest schools and the nearest one was almost two hours away. I’m very passionate about nature, preserving it and learning all there is to know. I have learned basic ASL and know intermediate Spanish and I'm working towards being fluent in both.

I grew up in Columbus and recently moved back after a few years living out west in Wyoming. I LOVE the outdoors! I spend most of my free time fly fishing and exploring new places in the surrounding states. I’ve been in education for 10 years: teaching in Atlanta, Columbus, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I am beyond excited to meet your kids and have tons of fun with them with in nature!

Our Mission

To foster a love of learning and nature through exploration and encouragement. Abiding no hatred, our goal is to send home dirty, tired, joyful children.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
