AN outdoor learning champion and top entrepreneur has received a business boost.

Justine Page, owner of Green Earth Learning, tweeted Dragons' Den star Theo Paphitis during Small Business Sunday (SBS) about her Burnham based firm.

Green Earth Learning aims to encourage children to get outside in nature through outdoor learning programmes.

Justine has received high praise for her business and was listed in f:Entrepreneur's top female founders for 2022.

Now she's received a business boost from Theo as one of just 0.8 per cent of entrants to win a retweet from the entrepreneur to his near 500,000 Twitter followers since his campaign started in 2010.

Justine says the post resulted in a greater following for her business as well as exclusive networking opportunities with other winners.

She picked up her award at the annual SBS event in Birmingham.

She said: “The win has given me a huge boost.

"The opportunities offered at the SBS event are fantastic and of course it was amazing to receive the certificate in person from Theo."

Justine founded Green Earth Learning in 2018 and runs the outdoor learning programmes as well as making handmade nature gifts with her sister Tasha.

These gifts are sold in more than 50 shops, including Wildlife Trusts and Ordnance Survey, as well as directly through her business website.

She works across many schools delivering the forest school programmes, runs an award winning forest school in Chelmsford and also offers introductory training to university students.

On Justine's win, Theo said: “We are thrilled to welcome new SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK.

"My vision is that everyone who has ever won an SBS retweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings.

"The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Green Earth Learning every success.”
