Annabel Ross

Founder & Creative Director

In my 30s I moved from my cosy life in London working at the BBC World Service to East Africa where I stayed for many years producing educational radio drama.

I finally returned to England in 2014. Expat life hadn’t looked after me too well so I then decided to take responsibility for my health and train as a Nutritional Therapist  in Bristol for three years. This is where I became interested in soil health.

After graduating I wanted to find a way to combine what I’d learnt about human health with my radio skills. I went to Devon to interview “Dr Compost” about soil health and wondered if there was a better way of entertaining whilst educating – he kindly agreed to become an earthworm for me whilst I did some gentle interrogating. Messages from the Wild grew from there.
