"Teresa has always had an interest in food and agriculture as an entry point to environmental, economic, political, health and community issues. She joined Gaia in 2001, where she is international advocacy officer for the African Biodiversity Network. Happily, this enables her to stay linked to Kenya, where she lived as a child. Teresa also helped to pioneer the very first “Transition Town” in Totnes, Devon and set up the food group, working with the community to build resilience in local food production, and reduce dependency on oil. Over the years, she has studied organic husbandry, worked on organic farms in Canada and South Africa, and has settled down in Devon. "
