Meet the neighbours 3

Hello everyone, I’m Linda – you might know me as a Director of Woodlanders Management Company although this is just a part of who I am.  I’m a microbiologist, run my own company and am the founder of a charity, Altevette Project, which raised money to build a school for impoverished and vulnerable girls living in the remote highlands of Upper Mustang on the Nepalese border with Tibet.  This photo is our school taken a few weeks ago (April 2021).

Most families in this harsh & unforgiving region are subsistence farmers and traditions and lifestyle of that area are largely Tibetan in nature.  Most of our children speak Tibetan as their first language.

Please do check out my website for more information.

Here I am with little Binu (baby) who was our most recent arrival last year.

About the author

The author and editor of GREENWOOD showing an early interest in wildlife – feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square in London. Way back in the day, vendors sold seed for people to give to the pigeons which used to flock there, and were incredibly tame, often sitting on your head or hand. The activity was soon banned as the birds made such a mess. Of course, it goes without saying, that the author would never dream of giving food to specifically attract pigeons at Greenwood House – they don’t need any encouraging!
