We will explore things from trees, to birds and our sheep poo!

Your guide: 
Maddy used to work at Cornwall Park as part of the Huia Lodge Discovery Hub team where she designed trails, wrote a lot of ecology content and greeted visitors. She now spends her time working at Kelmarna Gardens where she is the chief composter, managing Soil Factory, their community composting social enterprise. In this role she supports local businesses and residents to join the circular local food loop, reclaiming organic resources and creating living compost to support our food production. When not at Kelmarna, Maddy also works on developing and delivering urban composting solutions at For the Love of Bees.
