Joanna Simmonds – Programme Leader
Joanna grew up surrounded by farms and immersed in the ‘great outdoors’, where she developed interests in ecosystems, soil, sustainability and ethical agriculture.
A degree in Biology and a post-graduate teaching qualification led to a career as a science teacher in both Primary and Secondary schools.
On a school field trip to Wytham, she came across FarmAbility and became firstly a volunteer and then a trustee. Now, as a Programme Leader, Joanna enjoys sharing special experiences like lambing, bonfires and catching crayfish with the co-farmers.
