All of my life, I have been excited by all things wild. Wild foods and Wildlife have become my obsession, and I spend much of my time in the outdoors, learning, relaxing and teaching my knowledge of the wild to others.


Conservation Educator, Horticulturist and Historian.

Life to me is being outdoors. I have spent my whole life working in and around Stoke Park Estate and the nearby Frome Valley, witnessing and contributing to many changes aimed at improving Bristol’s wildlife. Throughout these years, I have studied and built up a vast array of knowledge and experience about wildlife, wild foods, bush craft and natural history, and now spend my time teaching others the skills and knowledge needed to live life outdoors and respect nature. I have extensive experience of working with schools, community and youth groups across Bristol to engage people of all ages in outdoor learning and have worked in Stoke Park Estate for more than 40 years. I am a multi-award winning outdoor learning professional whose work is well-respected in Bristol and Nationally.
