About the Event

Kate descended from market gardeners and scientists. Her upbringing was full of both and as a result she became a teacher of science, creativity and thinking skills. She became fascinated by how minds learn and, more importantly, what hinders learning, and in 2000 began to study neurology. 

Disenchanted with the national curriculum, Kate set up her own company taking themed thinking workshops around schools; one was on climate change. She then extended this to teach teachers how to develop thinking skills and higher order problem solving in their students. Her continued study of brain health led her to diet and environmental influences and then to how our food was produced. Meanwhile, her study of climate change led her to the health of the soil ....and to how our food was produced. 

With her children all now independent ..or nearly; Kate looks back on a privileged life and wants to give back. The one thing she feels she can do can do, that she believes is of vital importance, is to share the information that will save us and save the planet. You will be as amazed by the connections between our health, the soil's health and the health of the planet.
