Name: Mark Whitaker
Position: Course admin
Mark previously ran the office for a small international development charity based in Brighton and helping communities in rural Zambia with clean water, health, education and agriculture projects. Before that he spent many years with the Soil Association in Bristol where he managed the team supporting organic farmers and growers. He’s very happy to be back working with an environmental organisation and making a difference closer to home with Brighton Permaculture Trust.
Mark also works part-time on community development for Action in rural Sussex, helping build links between communities and their local woods in the Low Weald of Sussex – to improve wellbeing through time spent in nature, and at the same time encouraging more people to care for local woodlands.
