I've lived in West Hunsbury for a number of years with my wife and young family and feel very lucky to have the parks, green spaces and access to nature that we have here.
I have experience professionally working with communities around the UK leading the outreach work for national horticultural charity Garden Organic. My role involves project management with a remote team, overseeing a national network of community volunteers, engaging with stakeholders / partner organisations, and undertaking fundraising and bid writing to secure projects. I'm passionate about environmental education and feel very fortunate that I'm able to see the many benefits people gain from engaging with the natural world around them.
