Beatrix Oliver Bea is delighted to have joined the team as project manager for the new Gloucestershire Regenerative Environment and Agriculture Transition (GREAT) project. Bea spent the past three years working at DEFRA, where she worked in Farming and ELM teams on social research, innovative evidence dissemination, and Tests and Trials. During that time, she also did an MSc in Food Policy, looking into which policy approaches could champion more types of value in farming, such as by using True Cost Accounting. Bea is delighted to be working in the charity sector, really getting stuff done. She loves leisurely cycling, low-tech camping, and walking, though she spends more time these days with her young daughter at the allotment.
