Anna was born in Sweden, moving to Wales in 1987, she trained in Forestry and met her husband David. Living in Gwynedd, Anna has learnt Welsh and the family, a daughter and 2 sons, are all bilingual. Since 2004 Anna has been the volunteer leader of an award winning wildlife club for local children. Their exciting programme of activities inspires young people about nature Anna works for the Wildlife Gardening Partnership based with North Wales Wildlife Trust. She organizes the annual Wildlife Gardening competition encouraging schools, businesses, communities and private individuals to make room for wildlife in their gardens. Anna has secured funding to employ 3 staff promoting wildlife friendly gardening in N.Wales. This helps over 150 schools create gardens with the help of parents, staff and pupils. Anna and daughter (17) recently completed the Snowdonia 14 peak Challenge, raising £500 for charity. Anna is an inspiring enthusiast for wildlife and home grown produce. She shares her skill and knowledge with her local community and far beyond. I would love to see her carrying the torch in 2012.
