Hosted by Sharon Durdant-Hollamby, President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters and Fellow of both the ICF and the Arboricultural Association, this podcast has been born out of a desire to widen the messages of a professional industry to the general public, and it is hoped you will love the educational content as well as be enthused to engage in the most important issue of all – managing your health and well-being through engagement with the natural world.

Sharon has has always been an advocate in the education of the wider public to explain the vital role that trees and green infrastructure play in global well-being.

There has never been a more important time in our lives to reverse the global slide into a non-recoverable natural failing of the earth’s resources.

Multi disciplinary practices are engaging together, sometimes for the first time, to ensure that we build back nature better.
