Heidi Gibbs

Farm & Food Discovery Coordinator

Heidi grew up on a family farm in Worcestershire and studied primary education at the University of West England before gaining experience in a variety of roles in the charity, environmental and education sector. 

With the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust she worked with schools, forging links with the business sector, while work at Groundwork  focussed on environmental projects. 

 

Laterly, Heidi was involved with the Soil Association’s Food for Life programme, all about  making healthy,sustainable meals the norm for everyone to enjoy. Heidi worked with schoolteachers, helping them to build knowledge and skills to engage children and parents and reconnect people with where their food comes from.

 

‘I believe all children should have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the countryside, understanding seasonal changes in their local environment and making connections to the ground beneath their feet,’ says Heidi.
