Pam Rodway has worked in organic farming and earth-based teaching since she left the University of Edinburgh in the early 1970s. On her journey she has met many very inspiring people, including Lady Eve Balfour, Wendell Berry, Carlo Petrini and Satish Kumar, working in education, voluntary social work, food campaigning and agriculture. Pam believes the most exciting and creative experiences happen when these aspects of our lives are linked. Organic farming, small-scale dairying and good food have always been at the heart of Pam’s life nurturing her family and the wider circles in which she has lived for many decades. Pam has worked for Soil Association Scotland since 2003, and currently manages Crofting Connections, which works to bridge the gaps between children and young people and their crofting communities and heritage. This work includes schools growing, harvesting, cooking and eating traditional and contemporary vegetables, fruit and cereals from the croft garden, as well as celebrating crofting culture, and looking forward to a vibrant future for crofting.
