Albert has been engaging with staff and students around biodiversity for over 20 years. He is a qualified youth and community worker, organic/wildlife garden and bushcraft tutor. He combines all these skills to give schools a fun, creative and educational experience around discovering the natural world, in and around their school.

He also does field trips, like a visit to a local pond for dipping for insects, or a wood to learn about trees and wildlife. He believes that the most amazing wildlife stories, are right on our doorstep. Learning to understand and protect nature, starts with the part of the planet that the students interact with every day.

Following the seasons his workshops reflect the time of the year. From gathering and sowing native tree seeds in autumn, to searching in the summer sun, for butterflies and their caterpillars.

Edible and sensory gardens are becoming a vital part of the school environment and Albert can help design a school fruit orchard, herb garden or a sensory patch for inquisitive hands.

He also helps schools with green flags from composting, preventing food waste, designing a pollinator/ wildlife garden or doing a bird/insect survey. Workshops and walks can be tailored to meet the needs of the schools and are class/age appropriate.
