Built on strong foundations from a farming upbringing in the UK, I have a soil-up understanding of the complexities facing rural and environmental industries alongside global social challenges. I have developed a highly effective combination of skills that can cultivate change for people, land, and the environment. I am a Farm Manager running a commercial, net zero livestock farm for the benefit of underprivileged young people as well as the environment. I have a broad knowledge base in regenerative agricultural practices, holistic management, and environmental issues. I also facilitate therapeutic interventions supporting those from diverse backgrounds and champion people who need extra support.
Generation Regeneration. We need you.

My Study title is "Generation Regeneration We need You". There is a change happening in the agriculture sector, I believe now is the time to cultivate new interest for our industry and maximise the quality of recruitment to secure an innovative, progressive and stable future. I would like to show there is a way to encourage new entrants, attract young people from diverse backgrounds and keep the current capable workforce. I see the contextual stressors we are facing: environmental, community perceptions, changing policies, not as issues, but as challenges that can be solved. I will be exploring where apprenticeships schemes, organisations and individuals are facilitating this successfully with the aim to empower farmers, educators and land managers into a brighter future.
