Millie Darling

Countryside Manager

Millie is the Countryside Manager for The Garden Classroom.

She organises TGC’s Countryside Residential camping programme in Kent alongside Countryside Classroom day visits and with the Countryside Residential Team she is also developing an exciting new pilot adventure project in partnership with the South Downs National Park.

This builds on Millie’s prior work with TGC as a member of our camping team where she has been Facilitator, Camp Cook, and Site Manager.

Prior to working for The Garden Classroom Millie studied Biological Sciences at university. She then became a Project Manager for a climate change charity, a bike instructor and a biology teacher.

Millie is passionate about nature and the importance of access to nature for children’s wellbeing. What makes Millie happy is being on a TGC camp with a class of children playing, the campfire cooking dinner, and the birds singing!
