Biography

I am trained in early years childhood development, teaching and special educational needs. In 2018 I developed an interest in green care and care farming after placing a young person, at risk of exclusion from school, on a care farm. Shortly after, I began researching green care and care farming and became a director of a local care farm and a volunteer for the Farming Community Network. I am aware of the benefits to clients but I was keen to understand any wider benefits – my Fellowship research looks at care farming: the benefits for farmers and the rural community.
