Emma Carter

Emma Carter developed a passion for nature and plants as a child thanks to having a keen vegetable grower as a Dad and the encouragement to run wild in rural England. As an adult, Emma enrolled in an Introduction to Permaculture course and qualified as a Forest School leader. She finally acquired her own allotment in 2015, eager to grow and learn about environmental sustainability while reaping the endless physical and mental health benefits gardening offers. After a year of working at the Incredible Aquagarden in Calderdale, she now manages an acre permaculture community garden in Lancashire. Emma is happiest with her hands in the soil surrounded by birdsong, with a pencil and pad to scribble down ideas and observations of the world around.
