Jenny began working with FWAG SW in Gloucestershire in September 2022 as Sustainable Food Places Coordinator. This involves supporting the Gloucestershire Food and Farming Partnership, FWAG SW, Feeding Gloucestershire, and other key stakeholders across the county, to realise the potential of Gloucestershire’s membership of the national Sustainable Food Places programme. Gloucestershire was successfully awarded Sustainable Food Places Bronze Award in November 2023 and we are now looking ahead towards Silver.

Jenny’s background is in Geography and Environmental Science, which she taught for many years before studying for a MSc in Sustainable Development in Practice at UWE in Bristol, where she focussed on sustainable food systems. She is really enjoying her role getting out and about in Gloucestershire and meeting people from all parts of the food system who are interesting in more sustainable food and farming. When not at work or studying, she can most often be found in the garden or down the allotment pottering about.
