My name is Rachel – I’m a freelance writer and soil advocate.
I spent years working as a freelance adventure and outdoors writer as I cycled, hitchhiked, and wild camped around the world. I felt a lot of despair about the future of planet earth, and I kept running as fast as I could to avoid the sense of impending doom.
But I kept crossing these incredible people that were healing the land with permaculture, agroforestry, and regenerative agriculture. I met off-gridders, foragers, and organic farmers.
Inspired by these amazing human beings, I made a pledge to dedicate the rest of my life to helping people and the planet.
I’d be honored to tell your story.
RESEARCH AND TRaining
I trained in Soil Advocacy through Kiss The Ground. From water restoration to carbon sequestration and human and bovine nutrition, we covered a lot of ground!
My articles have been published in leading publications like Lonely Planet, The London Metro, and Your Horse Magasine. I was the lead writer for The Camper Lifestyle and Play Iceland before I decided to become a full time soil writer.
Soil Food Web.
I studied soil microbiology and microscopy at Elaine Ingham’s Soil Food Web School. I spend my freetime studying soil under my microscope. (Who said there’s nothing to do in the countryside!)
Thanks to my travelling days, I have hands on experience growing fruit and veg in organic farms and homesteads all over Europe. I’m also an experienced horse woman.
Let’s tell your story to the world!
