Rosie Mapplebeck's headshot

I'm an ex-townie autistic poet who now lives in countryside, caring for nature and guiding people to be more in sympathy with each other and the earth. I've run history walks and events to bring the past to life. I like to use hands on experiences to complement the stories, whether with item handling or crafts. I like working with people of difference, believing we all have something to share.
