Vicki worked as a primary school teacher for fifteen years and is passionate about creating outdoor learning and training opportunities for people of all ages. At the Soil Association, she set up the Farm Links Programme as part of the £17 million school meals initiative, Food for Life. A keen cyclist, Vicki founded Cycle Sunday, and worked with Sustrans to organise mass participation cycling events on Bristol’s Downs. When not planting trees, she teaches women in Easton to cycle.

“ANT has a powerful narrative to share about the vital role that woodland creation has in response to the climate emergency. It’s fundamentally practical but also deeply symbolic. I am excited to be enabling the people of Bristol to write the next chapter in ANT’s story.”
