Lauren Lochrie

Lauren works for The Conservation Volunteers (a community volunteering charity) managing and training groups of adults across Glasgow and further afield, to improve green-spaces for people and wildlife.
As a zoologist, with a passion for nature and adventure, Lauren has travelled to India, Trinidad, Guatemala, Ecuador and Bulgaria to study local wildlife and traditional crafts. Volunteering herself in the past two years as a Science Leader for British Exploring Society, Lauren helped young people engage with the amazing biodiversity of the Canadian Yukon wilderness and the high-altitude mountain regions of the Ladakh Himalayas.
Recently, Lauren began her diploma in Permaculture Design and has a natural affinity and love for herbalism after she became fascinated, in particular, with the amazing medicinal properties of plants underfoot and all around.
Lauren looks forward to her second year at Scapa Fest, working again in collaboration with her very talented friends as they develop and integrate their specialisms and passions on this creative journey together.
