After completing a 2 year Biodynamic Apprenticeship last year I am now managing a market garden and care farm. Having ‘given up’ a successful career in the NHS at the age of 27 in order to learn the very basic skills of living (preparing soil, planting seeds, milking animals etc), I am passionate about supporting other people taking the giant leap. I’m part of the core team who started the Groundspring Network for potential or starter farmers / growers, and continue to love the shining eyes I meet in the brave people who choose this beautiful tough way of life. I believe that being part of the Land Workers Alliance is a potent way to show I believe in a more engaged society and a more constructive relationship with our planet.
