Clare grew up in rural Somerset and has had a love for the outdoors from a young age. Graduating from Swansea University with a degree in Geography, she went on Edinburgh University to study for a Masters in Health Inequalities and Public Policy. It was during this course that she developed a strong interest in the role of nature in healthy childhood development. Clare spent six years working in outdoor education, with socially disadvantaged young people on the beautiful Dorset coast. She is looking forward to following in her grandfather’s farming footsteps as being part of the team as Senior Visit Coordinator at the Lewes Farm.
