I have been working in the land management industry field for 25 years, I am passionate about wildlife conservation and try to incorporate this on a business and personal level.
Since moving to Cornwall in 1995 I purchased an old miners cottage with some land, planted two native woodlands in 1998 and 2013 and managed the existing meadow through traditional Hay meadow principles and have now received designation as a county wildlife site from Cornwall wildlife trust, primarily for the abundance of 2 species of Orchid.
Having water adjacent to any other habitat greatly enhances the wildlife benefits, to this reason I have created several wildlife ponds.
Using local Tamar valley apples and cherries as well as some more exotic and experimental species I have planted a productive orchard.
I try to grow as much of my own food as possible from plants of all sizes using organic and permaculture principles.
Academically I achieved an HND in Countryside Management at Aberystwyth, Wales, and a qualification in Arboriculture (tree surgery) at Merrist Wood College in Surrey.
Prior to starting my own business in 2001, I worked for a local conservation company for 6 years, as a supervisor and then a contracts manager.
As my own business, I have had a variety of work gaining contracts with both larger public and private organisations, Estate owners, farms and domestic clients. I have opportunities for expansion, however, the niche I fill now is one of personal service, which I enjoy and at present do not want to compromise.
