Every Saturday, the Fairies Reveal Themselves in Pippy Park. #FolkloreThursday


In this episode, Tina White and her daughter Samantha Gaulton talk about their St. John's-based business, Fairy Door Tours, the importance of getting outside, and mischievous Newfoundland fairies. Tina is a graphic designer and digital media specialist by day. Struck by a creative spark three years ago, and a desire to share and spread her love of nature to others – Fairy Door Tours was born. She believes the idea was gifted to her by the Fairies, to help connect children and families to nature, and breath life into our fading belief in Fairies. Tina recently trained with the Association of Forest & Nature Therapy Guides & Programs – and will soon be offering guided Forest Bathing Walks as well. Samantha has a background in Marketing & Multimedia. She is a lead guide for Fairy Door Tours and special events, such as wand making, enchanted tea parties, private group tours and birthday parties. You can learn more about Fairy Door Tours on their website, or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
