Who we are
With a love of the natural world and a desire to reconnect the younger generation with Earthwise was founded by Claire Rosling who has a wealth of experience in outdoor education and is a qualified Forest School Leader.
After completing a PhD in Chemistry at Bristol University, Claire took the bold decision to swap her lab coat for some wellies and pursue her passion in sharing nature with children. A wealth of volunteering experience for environmental education charities set her in good stead to go on to establish the very successful Education Programme at The Community Farm, as their Community Learning Officer. Claire then went on to found Earthwise which now works in partnership with the farm to deliver their educational visits, holiday activities and seasonal cookery days for children and families.
Claire also runs Forest School sessions for schools and during the school holidays in woodlands of the Chew Valley and Bristol.
Claire is Forest School Level 3 qualified, CEVAS accredited, DBS checked, Food Safety trained and paediatric first aid trained. She also holds Public Liability insurance.
Jo was awarded 'Cook of the Year' at the BBC Food & Farming awards 2015 for her cookery sessions with two to four year olds at Bristol's Redcliffe Children's Centre. Alongside Claire from Earthwise, Jo runs seasonal vegetarian cookery days at The Community Farm for both children and adults and also write the popular recipe cards in the farm's veg-boxes.
India Langley has joined Earthwise as a regular volunteer to support our school visits and Children's activity days. She has a wealth of experience working with children and is DBS checked.
