Let us introduce you to our new Environmental Engagement Coordinator, Abi March.
Abi has more than 15 years’ experience in secondary teaching and environmental education; she’s also a Level 3 qualified forest school practitioner and has trained in mental health first aid. She’s also worked with people of all ages, which is a fantastic benefit for us, and we can’t wait to get our exciting new project off the ground.
Currently, Abi works two days a week at London Wildlife Trust, where she does education, learning and engagement work. She also delivers educational workshops at Camley Street Natural Park in King’s Cross, so she knows the Camden area very well. Abi will be working at Castlehaven three days a week between Wednesdays to Saturdays.
Abi is very excited about the Greengage Project (which includes the development of a new nature area and organisation of events, activities and training held in the Horticulture Hub and our community parks for all to enjoy), and she can’t wait to get the local community involved in helping her develop this space (our community parks). She’s also looking forward to being a part of a close-knit community and encouraging people to take ownership of this space.
In her spare time, Abi loves hanging out with her three dogs, spending time outdoors in nature, green woodworking (she’s currently making a chair), and learning all about nature.
You can meet Abi in person on Saturday, 17th March at our Friends of Castlehaven Community Park meeting at 3:30 pm. She looks forward to meeting you then.
