MattWiller - Main Profile
I am extremely passionate about engaging children/young people with permaculture in an zealous effort to reengage children/young people with the natural world. I currently run a school allotment: Reepham High School & College's 'Allotment Project & Orchard' which, with a community of volunteers, we started in February 2015. In 2018 the Allotment Project & Orchard won at the Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards (secondary school category) and has featured in the Permaculture Magazine on two occasions. I completed a Permaculture Design Course in the summer of 2017 and I continue to be inspired to learn more and more about permaculture so I can impart my knowledge to children/young people.
In July 2018 I was awarded the RHS School Gardening Champion of the Year; a national award for helping to engage children/young people with growing their own food, gardening and living more sustainable lives.
