Education, learning and engagement of people with plants and the environment is a passion.
Delivering, developing and supporting education programmes for schools, universities, colleges and botanic gardens has formed a rewarding part of my career in horticulture. Study at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) highlighted the potential of education to engage and empower individuals to have a positive impact on the environment we live in. with A Masters Degree in Education for Sustainability further developing this connection between people and the natural world. Work for the Eden Project, RBGE and Awaji Landscape Planning & Horticulture Academy in Japan and establishing the Growing Devon Schools Partnership has given extensive experience in this field.
