Meet Teresa Delfin: mother of two, founder of two companies, outdoorswoman extraordinaire, prolific blogger and, believe it or not, Professor of Anthropology! In this interview, we discuss her journey as an outdoorsy mother and entrepreneur, and she offers her best tips for parents wanting to get into the outdoors with their kids.
Just a quick post to say that I have been approached by the founder of Mountain Baby, an outdoor gear provider based out of Nelson, British Columbia, expressing a desire to partner with me and The Adventures in Parenthood Project.
