An experienced professional, expert in her field; a team leader; innovator and driver for food sovereignty. CCIVS is proud to have Kate as part of the team.
I have been professionally collaborating with Kate Curtis for the last few years. Working with Kate is very enjoyable as she is not shy to share her human side while keeping her professional performance high and reliable. In our last collaboration with the one week course "Nature in Action", she demonstrated great knowledge and skills at creating educational content, planning sessions and implementing them.
I have collaborated with Kate on projects at Boodaville since 2016 and am amazed at what we have achieved together. Thanks to her passion and love for regenerating soil she has been deeply committed to the organisation and implementation of our Food Forest, including design, organising materials, running inspiring training sessions and managing work days in the forest garden with up to 30 participants.
