Inge has recently joined Moorland Guides and gained her Walk Group Leader qualification. She lives in Ashburton and has spent many years exploring accessible and interesting routes on Dartmoor. She has set up Dartmoor Walks This Way which offers made-to-measure walks for people wanting to explore the quieter and less obvious parts of the moor -www.dartmoorwalksthisway.co.uk.
Inge worked for 17 years at Schumacher College in Dartington where she was responsible for planning and managing their renowned short course programme. She developed the Earth Pilgrim courses which took participants out onto Dartmoor in the company of Satish Kumar, one of the College founders, to experience wild nature and reflect on the way our relationship to the natural world affects how we live in these challenging times (http://www.schumachercollege.org.uk/courses/earth-pilgrim-2012). Her experiences leading groups during these courses, as well as taking other small groups out on an informal basis, made her realise how few people, even those living quite locally, venture beyond a few obvious areas on Dartmoor and thus miss out on its unique character and beauty.
Inge is a fluent German speaker and therefore interested in working with and developing connections with groups from the German-speaking world.
