Jo Hawley

Front of House

Jo is a geologist, with an MSc in geophysics from the University of Birmingham. She’s worked in publishing, editing research journals and as a private tutor, teaching environmental management and geography. Recently, she’s been cataloguing letters to eminent scientist John Phillips for the Natural History Museum’s archive in Oxford. John, first Keeper of the museum, is also the nephew of geologist William Smith, who was born in the nearby village of Churchill, where Jo lives with her family. 


‘I have loved watching the development of FarmED as I passionately believe in it’s mission and I am excited to be able to play my part in spreading the word about agroecology by engaging with visitors to the cafe, while serving delicious coffee and cake!’


Jo works front of house on Wednesday afternoons and on Thursdays and Fridays.
