Gail Houghton, Student Engagement Co-ordinator - Walsall College Students’ Union

Walsall College is located in an area ranked amongst the 10% most deprived in the country where physical activity and healthy eating is below the national average.  It was these sad statistics that enabled Gail to submit a bid in 2010 for the NUS Student EATS project and create an environmental & sustainable agenda at Walsall College. 

Gail engages both staff & students with a range of projects and opportunities that raises awareness, enthusiasm and always fun. Gail has overseen participation in a variety of projects including RHS Awards, Chelsea Fringe, Grow Wild as well as the continuing development of the Student EATS garden.

Gail’s sustainability passion goes beyond her comfort zone and is passed on to students and staff.  This has resulted in participation with the NUS at Chelsea Flower Show and an individual entry to RHS Gardeners World. This is additional to her actual job description and responsibilities
