Residency at Hoe Fen & Anglesey Abbey, National Trust 2013-14
Hoe Fen’s woodland Wildlife Discovery Area occupies a ‘wild space’ on the western edge of the stately home and formal gardens of Anglesey Abbey. It covers 20 acres and over the last seven years, head gardener, Richard Todd along with Community Engagement Officer, Janet Jephcott and a team of volunteers have transformed the sight into a unique woodland wildlife area.
Over the next year I will undertake a residency at Hoe Fen’s woodland wildlife discovery area. The residency will enable me to gain a better understanding of the local natural landscape, its wildlife and methods of conservation. This will involve me working alongside staff and volunteers throughout the year assisting with a variety of seasonal activities that will engage the interest of local people, community groups, schools and families in nature teaching them ways to appreciate and manage environments for wildlife.
