Originally from London, Simon and I worked at a Steiner community south of Edinburgh, farming alongside and caring for adults with special needs. We relocated to Cornwall in 1996, just 2 weeks prior to the birth of our third son, Charlie. We now have 5 children, all taller than us. Simon, a biochemist, traded a career in a hospital chemistry lab for a life as an organic farmer. He hasn't regretted it. And I, with a Masters degree in Natural Resource Management, attempt to find practical application for my knowledge whenever I can. Now he's learning the clarinet and I'm singing jazz. A pretty good team.
