Paul set up This Green Moon in 2015, because he wanted to bring children and adults back to nature. He studied for a year to gain a Forest School Practitioner Level 3 qualification and since then has gone on to create awe inspiring events and sessions for everyone. He loves all things music, extreme and has an enthusiasm and passion that is infectious.
Ash joined This Green Moon in 2017 as Events Director and manages the business on a day to day basis, making sure that everything runs as it should. With a background in television production she knows how to put on a good show and throw a good party. She loves lager, laughing and getting her hands dirty, grafting in the woods.
Katie has been part of This Green Moon from the start, she’s had no choice really because she’s Paul’s wife! She’s also the heart and soul of the woodland and loves dressing up as any character we ask her to be. She’s usually your greeter at the big events. Her ‘day job’ is a primary school teacher, so she’s our ‘go to’ person for education focus. She also makes a cracking lemon drizzle cake, which is legendary at tree nippers and forest school.
Kerry has been part of This Green Moon for as long as we can remember. Her background is secondary education, art and craft focused and her ideas are unbelievable. She has a huge input in the day to day sessions and particular focus with schools and developing outside spaces. She is also great fun..who else wears a different Christmas hat on the school run every day!
Charlie joined This Green Moon towards the end of 2018. He comes from a background of working with young adults with disabilities, community gardening projects and after-school groups that are environmentally focused. He’s also a volunteer bike mechanic at Leeds Bike Mill where they repair second hand bikes for refugees. Outside work and volunteering his big passion is art, he loves drawing, making, painting and just about anything creative.
The Blighton Bodger himself.. brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to This Green Moon. Phil(low) makes things out of natural nothing, that are built to last. We have Phil to thank for Swilligog village, the willow fencing, the compostable toilet and probably loads more things he’ll have made, by the time you read this.
Danny looks after all things structural for us. With 14yrs experience, he knows everything about tipi’s and is brilliant technically. If anything needs doing he’s the guy to do it. He loves the outdoors, his dog and we’re always fascinated by what he keeps in his pick up…a fridge!
Martin takes care of maintenance in the woodland and has extraordinary physical strength. He’s a real grafter and we really couldn’t do without him, he makes sure everything is kept safe for visitors. He has a keen interest in nutrition and loves a good debate.
Isabelle is new to our team and offers great support in sessions and the kids all love her. She has great enthusiasm and energy, she will go far.
Paul Robinson aka The Yorkshire Gourmet is a self-taught cook and forager, a Yorkshireman through and through. Paul travels the length and breadth of the country, seeking out seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients. He is the flavour genius of Fire and Dine.
The king of the car park and all things helpful. Len is very often the first person you meet at This Green Moon, when you park your car. Len is kind and caring and loves everyone to have a great time. He also likes a walkie-talkie.
Ash is an integral part of This Green Moon, as the other half of Ash (yes Ash and Ash!), he also doubles up as a waiter at Fire and Dine and you’ll also find him behind the bar. He’s also the creative brain behind a lot of the events so far and he also built this fab website for us.
