Karen Jonason (MA) – Karen is a retired teacher, originally from London, but who lived for many years in the North West. Working mainly in the field of Special Educational Needs, Karen has also been a very keen allotment holder for a long period of time. She became a trustee via a member of the choir in which she sings, who was aware of Karen’s interest in gardening. She is vice chair of the trustees and chairs the Fund Raising Group. She has many craft skills which have been put to good use for fund raising events. Karen enjoys travelling, the most recent exotic location being Vietnam. She likes to keep fit, but hasn’t yet managed to train her cats to wear a harness to accompany her on walks.
