Ruth has spent 20 years working and volunteering with communities using practical and creative ways to engage with the issues of climate change, sustainable energy and low impact living. She has a degree in Psychology and an MSc in Environmental Science and is interested in the place where the two meet and how to motivate and support people to live in a way that is more in harmony with the natural world.
She is happiest outdoors and spent a lot of her childhood up trees and in woods and mountains. She lives in Ashburton and is part of a landshare collective including a woodland, meadow and forest garden where she grows fruit, nuts, flowers and some unusual herbs and vegetables with her husband, two children and six other families.
More recently she has been very involved with Extinction Rebellion.
